Patria palace

In the heart of the baroque city of Lecce


As with most hotels of a historical nature the 67 rooms vary in size and layout – no two are the same! All are furnished in a warm and elegant style and ensure a very comfortable stay with safe, hairdryer, bathrobes and slippers, bath, air-conditioning, mini-bar and satellite TV. Complimentary Wi-fi (and throughout the hotel). Delightful touches such as the walled frescoes and high end marble bathrooms certainly enhance the feeling of quality. Deluxe rooms enjoy views of the baroque church opposite, whilst Superior rooms situated on the rooftop have the added benefit of a terrace with views across the city.


Grand spacious public areas adorn the Patria Palace with high ceilings and elegant, period furnishings. Let the ever attentive staff prepare a delicious cocktail for you in Danny’s bar or treat yourself to some exquisite local cuisine in the hotel’s classic restaurant (closed on Sundays), which also conjures up an impressive breakfast buffet each morning. A gorgeous wide and sweeping staircase leads up to the bedrooms and an enchanting rooftop terrace affords wonderful views across the baroque delight of this fascinating city. 

As soon as you leave the hotel’s entrance you are confronted with breath-taking architecture and buildings, the stunning Basilica of Santa Croce is literally right in front of you! From here it’s extremely easy to explore and discover Lecce’s delights on foot. Lovers of culture and in particular baroque architecture will be in their element with the great variety of churches and ‘palazzi’ on offer. Characterful shops and boutiques abound and delightful cafés and trattorias spill out onto hidden piazzas and pedestrianised walkways – a people watcher’s paradise! 

Lecce provides an excellent strategic base to discover the extremely friendly southern region of ‘Salento’, which is blessed with wonderful beaches, baroque centres, historical towns and a fabulous climate.
