At Marina di Leuca, from the Greek word leuk, which means white, the little port is protected by the ancient Iapigium promontory with its little houses and sumptuous villas lining the seafront "delle Ville", alternating different styles ranging from Moorish to Pompeii, from Gothic to Art Nouveau. Each home corresponds to a characteristics “bagnarola”, a small sort of construction on the foreshore to allow swimming far from indiscreet glances. Near the lighthouse stands the Basilica or the Sanctuary of Santa Maria de Finibus Terrae, where the Mele Artistic Museum is also located.
