LECCE - HISTORIC CENTRE In the heart of the Baroque city, right behind Chiesa di San Matteo and a short walk from Piazza Sant'Oronzo and Anfiteatro Romano, we are delighted to offer for sale an independent part of the historic "Palazzo Astore". It was named after the homonymous noble family and its building dates back to the 16th century. The property, which is about 406 sqm in total, is on two levels (ground floor and basement). The ground floor is accessible by three independent and original pitch-pine wooden doors. The elegant and fascinating living room is embellished with elegant Art Nouveau frescoes of remarkable beauty and particular stylistic and pictorial value and they date back to the late 1800s - early 1900s; the other vaults, as well as all the supporting masonry, are in bright exposed stone. All the rooms, which are all connected among them, feature beautiful different types of vaults. On the back side of the building there is a private garden where you can breathe the magical atmosphere and charm of the Baroque city. Both from an internal staircase and independently from Via Vignes, you can enter the basement room which is steeped in history since old barns and an ancient Roman door were there discovered. It consists of three large rooms with barrel vaults, as well as a storage room. The Palace, for its artistic value, architectural features and its historical relevance, has been included in the "tourist-cultural district" of the historic center, as well as being part of the "Bodini Literary Park" that includes the most beloved places which are mentioned in the works of the well-known poet and writer Vittorio Bodini, who was born and raised in Lecce. Furthermore, the property has been submitted to relevant restoration works until 2009. Lecce is 12 km from the nearest beaches of Salento, 40 km from Otranto, 28 km from Gallipoli and 65 km from Brindisi Airport.
