A perfect location for an aerial view of the harbor below. A light house is located here. There is also a church facing a large plaza. It is worth to spend a half hour to walk around.

Most southerly point of Italian mainland. You can come close to the lighthouse but there are no inside visits.Well worthwhile because of the superb views of the Italian coastline from the square located on the cape at the foot of the lighthouse.

The view is simply fantastic. It can be reached through the Cascata Monumentale or by car. The close by Santuario is also great. If you are in Leuca it's a must see attraction

The lighthouse is behind a high fence and barbed wire at the tip of the heel of Italy's boot. There is a nice view from either side ofv the fence surrounding the lighthouse.

Enjoyable climb up by stairs...we needed morning exercises. There is a beautiful path next to the sea leading to Faro.

We visited this site after climbing the stairs of the Cascade Monument. We found it relaxing to walk around and look at the views.
