It is thought that the name Castrignano Cape comes from the Latin "castrum" that means fortress, camp.
It is a fortification that the Romans used to build a defense of strategic locations. In the tenth century the Saracens destroyed the nearby farmhouse Vereto and a part of the inhabitants fled to the fortress Castrum and settled there. Thus he was born Castrignano Cape.
At the tip of Puglia and Italy is the hamlet Santa Maria di Leuca, a famous seaside resort of Salento, rich in history, culture and legends that are lost in the mists of time.
Leuca is a popular tourist destination especially for the nineteenth-century villas, built according to different styles for the most part by Ruggeri and Rossi architects.
Santa Maria di Leuca In the past it was administratively divided between the municipality of GAGLIANO CAPE for the part where there is the Sanctuary of Santa Maria de Finibus Terrae, and the municipality of CASTRIGNANO CAPE, for the part between the tip Ristola and Punta Meliso. Today Leuca lies entirely in the municipality of Cape Castrignano. More precisely, it means the area above the promontory of Leuca to Santa Maria on which there are the Basilica and the lighthouse (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), while the Marina di Leuca is located lower and is between tip Meliso east, at the foot of the promontory, and points west Ristola, extreme southern tip of Salento.
