Follow the footsteps of Lecce’s great noble families at Palazzo Bozzi Corso, where 18th-century splendour intertwines with modern art and design. Just a stone’s throw from the splendid Basilica of Santa Croce and the very central Piazza S. Oronzo, and only 4 minutes’ walk from La Fiermontina, this 10-suite mansion will take you back in time. This historical palace was originally built by Gabriele Bozzi Corso in 1775 and behind the Palazzo Bozzi Corso’s remarkable facade, embellished with the curved balconies and wrought iron railings that are so typical of Lecce’s style, an imposing carriage entrance opens onto a majestic courtyard, invisible to passers-by. Today the Palazzo represents the ideal union of the antique and the contemporary and perfectly embodies La Fiermontina’s aesthetics, deeply rooted in local history and tradition while also projected towards the future, where beautiful stone-work, high ceilings, parquet floors and marble bath tubs deliver la dolce vita within.
The Palazzo comprises ten splendid suites, a library, a garden, several lounges and a beautiful courtyard style garden. It has its very own olfactory signature, which instantly makes one feel at home, with a sense of well-being. Every suite has its own character and style. Named after a member of the Fiermonte-Filali family or after a chapter of its history, every suite has its own story to tell. The Palazzo’s ten suites are classified by three categories: two “Classic Suites”, four “Aristocratic Suites” and four “Wellness Suites” equipped with a double hydromassage shower or a private sauna. Created by renowned designers and young emerging talents, the furniture and equipment were carefully chosen according to the identity and atmosphere of every room or area. This unique choice of design, scenography and decor emphasizes and enhances the works of art that are scattered throughout the palazzo. It gives every suite its very own soul, as unique and personalized as would be the rooms of a family home. The hotel's historical and central location allows guests to indulge in many of the best bars, restaurants and boutiques within easy reach. Or, if you’d rather escape for the day, let us arrange an indulgent cruise on Salento’s glittering waters or a scrumptious food tour with local cheese, oil and wine.
