  • Watchtower erected in the second half of the 500 with defensive and sighting purpose against the Turkish invasions. Known by the name of Torrevecchia it takes the name of the dead Homo for the human remains found in the nearby cave. Nearby there are two small local trattoria bars and a bridge. This is the only true monument of the place, unfortunately abandoned but always MAGICAL.

  • A wonderful coastal watchtower dating back to the 15-16th century erected in coastal defense against the Turkish raids placed on a bulwark at the entrance to the west promenade of Leuca. Left to the total degradation of time by the irresponsible administrators of the municipality of Castrignano del Capo who unduly pocket the onerous taxes and the proceeds derived from the parking lots that every summer pin the coffers of the municipality without ever having seen in decades and tens of years a reinvestment for the purpose of road and six services. However the tourist passing the look admired but also desolate

  • It is one of the towers part of the defensive system of coastal towers that are still scattered along the entire coast of the Peninsula. About 3 km apart, they were manned by soldiers who, at the sight of Turkish and Saracen pirate boats, set off inland on horseback to raise the alarm. The Omomorto tower is located at the beginning of the waterfront Christopher Columbus, of the Marina of Santa Maria di Leuca.

  • Not much more to see as a rundown lookout tower. The view over the sea is well worth it.
