This is the hub of Lecce's social life in the heart of the maze of pedestrianized alleyways lined with cafés, little restaurants, and crafts shops. Named after Oronzo, the city's patron saint, who crowns a Roman column that once marked the end of the Old Appian Way, the piazza is also occupied by another city symbol, the somewhat odd-looking 17th-century Sedile, formerly the town hall but now and art and exhibition center. The piazza revolves round the sunken hemicycle
of the old Anfiteatro Romano, where the rows of seats are clearly visible.
