Description

Lecce, historic centre, renovated 15th a.c. century palace for sale, consisting of five apartments, located on two stories.

Ground floor: private courtyard, one two bedrooms apartment and two studio flats. First floor: terrace, one two bedrooms apartment and one studio flat.

Floor area 250 sq.m. about, court yard 50 sq.m., terrace 40 sq.m.
This property is located near piazza Pellegrino, the former piazza "della zecca" (place of mint), and it borders on the most famous Vernazza-Castromediano palace: as they have the same frame and architecture, probably these two buildings were a single one or date back the same time.

The facade holds discordant parts, like the medieval tower (15th century a.c.), which we can find in military buildings, next to flower ornaments, the hallmark of dwellings, added during the following century, like the "candelabra", an ornamental pattern representing the passion of Christ, and the shell, symbol of renaissance.

But the most interesting feauture of Vernazza-Castromediano palace is kept in its basement, which hide a pagan temple dedicated to Iside, the aegipthian goddess, whose veneration spread in Italy with the growth of Roman empire.
Another important discover is the so-called "purgatorium", a room where the devotees make pure before enter the temple.

All the artifacts date back between 4th century b.c. and 4th century a.c.: in this period Salento was dominated first by the Messapi and after by the Romans. The existence of the Messapi is proved by a fragment of road, kept in the floor of the building.
