The stiletto on the heal
Oct 2020 • Couples
A peaceful spot with a relaxed atmosphere. It’s a great place to have a coffee and a sandwich while pondering your next move at the end of Italy.

Amazing Views and Peaceful Setting
Sep 2019
This is definitely worth the drive. This is the very tip of Puglia--where both seas--Ionian and Adriatic, come together. Many tour buses visit this sanctuary, however, it did not feel crowded. Peaceful visit.

stunning views!
Sep 2019
Fantastic views out Santa Maria, parking may be a problem in high season. Great relaxing feeling, not a long stop off. You need money for the loo. The light house is stunning but you can't go in!
The steps down are amazing at night, especially from certain hotels.

Great view, church with real life activity but outside litter
Jul 2019 • Family
The place is nice for a real view of the tip of the heel. The church is beautiful however people keep littering all over the hills around the church which is disgusting and a petty to such a nice spot. Super romantic also as we were there during a lively wedding!

Most southern church of Italy?
Jul 2019 • Couples
At the tip of the heel, this church overlooks the Mediterranean see. Church is pretty basic (Not richly decorated) but it’s location makes it special

Well worth stopping
May 2019 • Couples
This is one of those truly exceptional/inspirational places that it is possible to visit in Italy. It exudes peace and tranquillity.
Take time to wander and enjoy.
There are some magnificent views from the surrounding terraces.
Note: There is limited free parking beside the Basilica.

The view. It was worth the drive from our hotel in Lecce. If my partner hadn't been a whimp (Ha!), I would have loved to walk down the steps to the harbor. But the photo op at the top made it all worthwhile!

Overlooking the sea, at the southernmost tip of Salerno, is the Basilica of Santa Maria.It was built over the ruins of an ancient pagan temple, and now stands on an impressive piazza. Legend has it that Saint Peter stopped at Leuca, came across the pagan temple dedicated to Minerva, and Christianised it !!

Beautiful and worth the climb
Oct 2018 • Friends
We walked up the 296 steps after wandering along the port from our hotel in Leuca. After taking a moment to catch our breath we were able to explore the courtyard and the beautiful views in every direction. We were lucky enough to see a wedding party arriving and hear the music from the ceremony, it was absolutely amazing and very atmospheric.
