The Convitto Palmieri

The Convitto Palmieri of Lecce , as it appears today, is the result of demolitions and reconstructions carried out in different time spans, even after centuries, as frequently happened for religious and convent buildings, whose achievements were always linked to donations from the faithful, donations or other forms of support.

 The architectural complex represents an articulated but unitary structure, conceived and built over the centuries, and in particular during the nineteenth century, through multiple interventions and rethinking, and with different uses, which culminated in the nineteenth century with the placement of the higher level educational institution in the city of Lecce.The church of San Francesco della Scarpa constitutes the original site around which the buildings of the ancient convent were built and developed that today make up the Palmieri boarding school complex.
