Locality
Santa Maria di Leuca, often called just "Leuca", overlooks the wonderful sea from the extreme tip of Salento. Located in the province of Lecce, Santa Maria di Leuca is one of the most famous tourist localities in Puglia thanks to its magical landscapes. Its coastline is one of the most enchanting places in Puglia with rocky inlets, small sandy bays and underwater and superficial grottos.

Places to know and visit
The Cristoforo Colombo seafront, considered one of the apulian wonders, is a famous tourtist locality in the southern Salento with a beautiful cliff that frames the crystal-clear sea. This seafront is the ideal place for romantic walks among the many nineteenth-century villas built by the richest families of Salento.

The Lido Azzurro, the first beach resort in Santa Maria di Leuca open since 1960, is the most important meeting point with a restaurant that offers traditional local specialties and pizza, with music until late night. It also has a wide terrace to enjoy appetizers and admire the spectacular sunsets of Salento.

The ice-cream parlors on the Leuca seafront are among the main tourist attractions of the area. In particular, there is the Martinucci Gelateria open since 1950 that offers a delicious homemade ice cream. The "Ice on the Road", open all night long starting from 22:00, is the perfect place to have breakfast at dawn when you get out of the night club, with croissants and a typical mediterranean coffee.

The eastern and western Grotte Marine are an enchanting tourist attraction. The incredible combination of prismatic colours created by the sea that meets the caverns will be an unforgettable image. There are about thirty grottos to be visited at different times of the day.

The Fontana Monumentale, on the Japigio promontory, has a suggestive salt-water waterfall that reaches the sea. This Fountain marked the accomplishment of the Aqueduct of Puglia that used to bring the water of the Sele river to Leuca. The monumental style of the Fountain was chosen by Mussolini who wanted to celebrate the end of a problematic situation, both economical and social.

Nineteenth-century Villas. Santa Maria di Leuca has 43 aristocratic villas that testify how the noble families chose this place to spend their holidays. These villas were built by amazing architects such as Ruggeri and Rossi, who perfectly knew how to create spectacular residences, all of them with different styles. They are all lined up on the seafront, like some sort of exhibition.

Basilica di Santa Maria di Leuca. On the 1st August 343 B.C., Pope Giulio I consacrated  the Sanctuary, known as Basilica de Finibus Terrea (which means "at the end of the earth", name wanted by the ancient romans). Today, it is destination of pilgrimages during the year and of thousands of visitors during the wamer months, fascinated by its landscape, its majestic architecture and the beauty of its places of worship.

Not far from the Sanctuary, there is the majestic lighthouse built in 1854 on a sixteenth-century sighting tower. It has an octagonal plan and is 47-meter tall (more than 100 meters on the sea level). A spiral staircase with 254 stairs offers a breathtaking view. The lighthouse is operational and is one of the most suggestive attractions of Santa Maria di Leuca.
