La Fiermontina – Luxury Hotel in the heart of Lecce’s Baroque
La Fiermontina is an urban resort of 16 unique guestrooms and suites built around a 17th century private home in the heart of Old Lecce, known for its Baroque architecture and storied past.
Set amid the baroque structures of Puglia’s historic city of Lecce, La Fiermontina is a modern-day masseria that mirrors its storied surroundings. This private retreat makes for a memorable holiday in Puglia.
Olive trees surround the swimming pool in the sculpture garden, a rarity in the old quarter and the restaurant offers a modern, light take on traditional Pugliese cuisine.
Palazzo Bozzi Corso – Lecce Behind Doors
Palazzo Bozzi Corso is situated only a short walk away from the splendid Basilica of Santa Croce and the very central Piazza S. Oronzo.
This historical palace was originally built by Gabriele Bozzi Corso in 1775, probabily on the remains of a pre-existing XVI century building. In 1879 the Palace became property of another aristocratic family, the Conti Zecca, who in turn passed it on to the Vergine-Indraccolo family during the second half of the last century. The architect Emanuele Manieri endeavoured to achieve a perfect balance of lines and proportions with elegant and imposing results.
Today the Palazzo represents the ideal union of the antique and the contemporary and perfectly embodies La Fiermontina’s aesthetics, deeply rooted in local history and tradition while also projected towards the future.
