  • Nice ancient staircase. Love to hike it down and up again
  • Nice view the waterfall open every Friday at 9PM
  • Nothing special. It's the end of the Apulian aqueduct and in summer you don't see any water running. In general, there are more beautiful spots than Leuca. The salesmen (especially those who want to convince you to participate in a boat trip) are very obtrusive there. When you visit the aqueduct, you might be interested in questions as: Who gave the order to build it? Where does the water come from? Where had the aqueduct been built through?
  • Walking down the long staircase (about 225 steps), from the bottom to the top, you reach the forecourt of the Basilica Sanctuary Santa Maria de Finibus Terrae. As for the waterfall, it is of an artificial nature, made as a monumental work, as a conclusive trait of the Aqueduct of Puglia, and is opened exceptionally, only on special occasions or events. From above you can enjoy a beautiful view of the marina and the Seafront of Leuca.

  • Mammoth stone staircase that connects the Shrine of Our Lady of Leuca to the port of the marina, Leuca. At certain times of the year (especially in summer) there is the acceptance of the staircase. Tricolor staircase, the 3 colors of the Italian flag. Behind the lighthouse of Leuca that is the guardian That's about 225 steps. Try to count them, too.
