The Pantheon

columns and ceiling

The Pantheon was about 5 minutes walk from our hotel and we were able to fit it in the first afternoon we arrived.

Lecce Churches

church ceiling

Lecce is famous for its churches. We bought the ticket that gives entry to several churches and made the rounds.

Basilica San Marco

arches in basilica

The Basilica San Marco is old even by cathedral standards and it feels it. Full of beautifully detailed mosaics.

Monastery of San Jéronimo

ceiling detail

The monastery was different from other churches and cathedrals we’ve seen in that a lot of the decoration was via murals painted on the walls and ceilings.
