Santa Maria di Leuca, Adriatic coast 3 km from Leuca.
D'AMICO IMMOBILIARE offers for sale a land of 8,445 square meters, with two Trulli or Pajare overlooking the sea. The land has terraces and various dry stone walls. It falls within the Regional Natural Park Otranto Santa Maria di Leuca. The Park allows you to restructure the existing buildings with the addition of pergolas, biological tank and water reserve.
The first Trullo of 40 covered square meters is to be restructured. And it is necessary, therefore, to present a restructuring plan in order to be able to recover it. Upstream of the property, there is another Trullo or pajara (with approved renovation project) on the side of which there is an adjacent courtyard.
The property is accessed directly from the coast.
Salento Airport (Brindisi) is 130 km from Santa Maria di Leuca, while Lecce is 90 km from the property.
Leuca is a famous tourist seaside resort, above all for the nineteenth-century villas, built according to various styles for the most part by the architects Ruggeri and Rossi. Towards the end of the 19th century there were 43 villas, many of which today are in disuse or appear deeply transformed compared to the past.
More precisely, Santa Maria di Leuca is the area above the promontory on which the Basilica and the lighthouse are located (which with its height of 48.60 meters and its location at 102 meters above sea level is one of the most important in Italy). The seaside resort, instead, is located lower and is between Punta Mèliso to the east, at the foot of the promontory, and Punta Ristola to the west, the extreme southern edge of Salento. According to a nautical convention, Punta Mèliso is the point of separation between the Adriatic coast (to the east) and the Ionian coast (to the west). In fact, the official, as well as natural and historical, border between the two seas is given by the Strait of Otranto, that is the strait between the easternmost point of Italy (Punta Palascia) and Capo Linguetta in Albania.
Since October 2006 the territory of Santa Maria di Leuca is part of the Regional Natural Park Otranto Santa Maria di Leuca, established by the Region of Puglia in order to safeguard the east coast of Salento, rich in valuable architectural assets and important animal and vegetable species.
A famous legend says that Santa Maria di Leuca (or perhaps Porto Badisco) would have been the first landing place of Aeneas. Then Saint Peter would arrive here from Palestine, and began his work of evangelization, up to Rome. The passage of Saint Peter is also celebrated by the Corinthian column of 1694 erected on the square of the Basilica, recently restored.
A staircase of 296 steps connects the Basilica to the underlying port, setting the monumental waterfall of the Apulian Aqueduct that, ending in Leuca, flows into the sea.
In Leuca there is one of the various Italian Air Force headquarters, which makes daily weather forecasts.
