Casina dei Basiliani



Our Story

The name “Casina dei Basiliani” come from the historic origin of the structure builded during three different ages.

In a first Basilian monastic settlement (VII/X century) a little rocky church was built. In this little church we can see some historic tracks in the sacred iconography built into particular niches. The little church fit with a second neoclassical house recognizable by his trappings and friezes in “pietra leccese” (a particular local rock). Meantime a particular room and a water hole of renaissance origin were built. Nowadays that room has become the restaurant room.

The entire has been recently renovated, and every building are identical to the historical counterpart. Our purpose is to recreate the same atmosphere that the old Lecce’s nobility lived during the quiet periods of september and october.
