We present electrical transport, magnetization, and ac as well as dc magnetic susceptibility measurements of the
highly anisotropic compound LaSb2. Our data display a very broad anisotropic transition upon cooling below 2.5 K
into a clean superconducting state with a field-dependent magnetization that is consistent with type I behavior.
We identify distinct features of two-dimensionality in both the transport and magnetic properties. Application
of hydrostatic pressure induces a two- to three-dimensional crossover evidenced by a reduced anisotropy and
