There are still a few sections you can see what it was like before the restoration, and there also a few areas you can view entirely different scenes done in a different era.
You can find in this site several pictures of the interior, posted by visitors - and I do not know how they did, since photographs are forbidden and you'll find people reminding you of that.

Masseria Brancati Ostuni, Italy
They have 1000 year old olive trees with incredible history and production sites as old as the trees!
This is an unbelievable place- they are preserving the past and share the story and site in a fun and educational way.
Castello Aragonese Taranto, Italy
A rare opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the days gone by, and the views from the tour are well worth it so do take your camera with you.
The view from the wall is spectacular and the history of the fort is very interesting.
Piazza del Duomo Lecce, Italy
One of the sites in the city of light Jay, Baroque architecture found in lecce, very interesting ancient city on the southern tip of Italy.
Because of the dominant height of the Bell tower and the intricate carvings of the baroque architecture, dusk is a marvelous time to view this piazza.

This is an amazing photo spot with a stunning view.
The rocky coast is a great view, walk along for a few hundred meters to see it all!
Centro Storico, Lecce Lecce, Italy

Lecce is a superb historical site with lots of current life to it, food, attractions, history, wine etc If in Italy's south and you are cultural tourists, it's a must
Duomo di Lecce Lecce, Italy
The Duomo, along with an impressive number of other Baroque sites found throughout Lecce, amaze, shock, baffle, inspire and confuse as one passes beyond the entry doors of these gilded treasures.
The view of the Duomo Plaza with sculptures and figures on the nearby houses is really great!

Cattedrale di Otranto Otranto, Italy
My personal, most favorite site I have in this world... well, I guess I could say that about Monreale Cathedral and Chiesa La Martorana, these are the top three churches for art and architecture in the world.
Walk the walled city and take in the views either during the day or even better at night time, its a must!!

Centro Storico Otranto Otranto, Italy
Lovely and well preserved borgo with an imposing castle, small alleys and great ocean view
Lovely views from the top and a fascinating exhibition about finds from a nearby grotto.
Tremendous work has been accomplished just in the past year and it is a bonus (in my opinion) to visit the site while the work continues.
Santa Maria del Casale Brindisi, Italy
This church has been designated an historic landmark since 1875 but it did not stop “progress” from situating Brindisi airport right next to it!
... the walls, built in different historical moments as well as the almost labyrinthical structure that will take you very deep underground in a small temple, then transformed into a thermal site by the Romans.
Other than that, these sites -including the Basilica and Duomo- are ever more intensely toured than visited as houses of worship.
Make sure to visit it again at night when the lights are on... stunning views!

The doorways to this ancient church built on site of a Roman temple have wonderful intricate carvings.
we had only a few hours in Brindisi so we did a circular walk along the well marked tourist sights from the waterside promenade.
Chiesa di San Matteo Lecce, Italy
From this point of view, perhaps the most famous monument in Lecce, the Santa Croce's Basilica, is revealing: the incredible, exuberant decoration of the facade fits into a pattern that is after all the architectu...
Ponte Girevole Taranto, Italy
This view into the old town is fantastic and you almost feel like your in Paris.
Views from here at sunset are spectacular.
Scavi di Egnazia Fasano, Italy
The museum was spacious, well lit and airy, and it was divided into 'rooms' each of which was devoted to a specific period within the history of the site, each section with a display of its own historical artefacts.
The lady who sold us the tickets was very helpful and explained what tickets we could buy and whether we wanted to view just the Roman excavation or the tomb below the museum.
Also a perfect Vantage point to view the joining of the Adriatic Sea into the Mediterranean at the Ionian Sea! WEll worth a stop!
We enjoyed a sunny morning to drive our rental car 56km from Otranto, stopping for wonderful coastal views near Grotta Romanelli.

Centro Storico Martina Franca, Italy
There are a number of restaurants in the main piazza, we lunched al fresco at the Pane, Amore e Fantasia in the Piazza Plebiscito with a wonderful view of the basilica.
Just get lost and enjoy the view
Piazza Sant'Oronzo Lecce, Italy
That's saying a great deal when considering a San Marco Piazza in Rome as well as dozens of other more "incredible" sites.
There are good views looking down into it from the piazza.

There are great views of the town and the coast line from the top, and an interesting museum within.
Reading the many reviews of the castle I'm surprised that Americans and English haven't discovered one of the most beautiful sites in Puglia yet!
