Santa Maria di Leuca

At Salento's southernmost tip lies the sanctuary of the Basilica De Finibus Terrae ("end of the land"), which was consecrated in 343 A.D. It has a lovely panoramic view of the harbor and the bay of Leuca. Its iconic lighthouse stands more than 100 meters above the sea below and is considered to be one of the most important lighthouses in Italy. The sanctuary lies on the site of a Roman temple, evidence of the area's complicated history. After World War II, Leuca was also briefly home to displaced Holocaust survivors.

The Salento

The famed heel to Italy’s boot, the Salento region is an undiscovered gem thanks to its olive grove–laden landscape, preserved Baroque buildings and picturesque beaches dotted with lagoons, grottoes and dramatic white cliffs. The peninsula splits the Adriatic and Ionian seas, and first-time visitors should head to the towns of Gallipoli, Otranto, Lecce and Leuca. History buffs will appreciate a visit to the region’s Greek towns, where locals still speak a form of Greek indigenous to southern Italy.
