San Matteo is a wonderful church in the old town of lecce. Both it's inside and outside is beautiful with a rich history. You can often be lucky and witness a wedding.

We were ushered in to this church by a big burly man, which we thought was a little odd. Within seconds we observed him demanding money from the people as they were leaving the church. As each person left he was shouting "money on the...More
