Sei in home - cosa fare - Cratfsmanship


The handicraft in Lecce has different creative arts.

The stone of Lecce is soft, warm and easy to work. It’s one of the major artistic expressions, many handworks of Baroque’s inspiration have been made with.

A number of little craft workshops specialized in the realization of papier-mâché statues, in the old town, are as prestigious as the stone. This production is alive especially during Christmas, with the creation of Saints and other characters of the history of Salento.


Another artisan product is the manufacture of the terracotta. Many vases, containers, plates or jugs are worked with it and decorated with traditional designs.
