The square is full of cafes gelato places, bars and shops even McDonalds. All through the day it is full of people but nothing like in the evenings when the locals come out for the passagiata which runs right through this square. Always lots of life.

It seemed like more of a busy crossroads than an elegant square. The Roman theater at one end was opposite a chain hamburger restaurant; people ignored the good statue of the saintly bishop that saved the town centuries ago.

We visited here as we had one and a half hours in Lecce. Very easy to locate and this was a very Lively place in the central of Lecce. The ruins in the heart of the piazza add to the ambience where you can see into the amphitheatre. Great place to people watch and as another writer said, there are toilets in the Mc Donald's (access by code on th receipt). We ate in Mc Donalds and had a chicken salad and they give a small bottle of olive oil!

The square is large and it has to one side the old Roman Amphitheatre which is large and impressive as well as the Sedile, a tall monument. Other than that square is fairly standard and not that impressive with one corner with a chain restaurant out of character in a modern building.
