Another jewel of art in one of the main squares of Lecce, here it is the imposing Roman Amphitheater. It dates back approximately to the first and second century AC and it is amazing to see that it is still there. Indeed, it is possible to admire only 1/3 of the entire oval-shaped architectural structure, but they say it could have a capacity of 25000 people. It was discovered in the early twentieth century during the construction of the palace for the Bank of Italy (the building on the left corner up in the second picture).
