…she was one of the original saints of Lecce before Oronzo got pride of place. So of course she has her own church. I’ve posted pictures of the front but only managed to go in for the first time today. It’s much bigger that you could guess from the outside and the inside has stunning features.

The picture bottom left isn’t great because the sun was shining directly in but it shows S.Irene in her most common pose holding a replica of the city in her hands.
