המלצות: We liked that in this house, you could see thousands of years of habitation revealed. The museum is run by a family and does not enjoy government support. They have a guide in English and all the stations are numbered. So it's easy to tour. The museum is within easy walking distance of the center of Lecce

The museum Faggiano" is a historical-archaelogical building located in the historic centre of Lecce.

Everything started almost by chance in 2001, when the owner of the property, Luciano Faggiano, was forced to break the floors in order to change the sewer pipes which, being old, caused continually humidity on the walls.

And it was precisely during such work that began to re-emerge historical and archaeological sites of considerable interest, which testify the presence of ancient people in successive time.It then continued with a restoration work (completed in December 2007) made entirely by Faggiano's family under the supervision of the Superintendency of archaeology of Taranto and under the guidance of architects Franco and Maria Antonietta De Paolis. These excavation works rendered the house a real archaeological site, where you can admire more than 2000 years of history. It was found out that the house, once was an old nunnery then closed around the sixteenth-seventeenth century.

The building houses on the first floor a catering service for visitors with exposure of local food products and handcrafts Salento. Upon request, the building can be rented for private events, exhibitions, meetings, location, ceremonies.
