Without water...nothing special
Jun 2017 • Family
As we read on internet the fall is not always open. We were not lucky and we missed the best part of the show. Therefore not too much to say...it looks like an huge stair with a great panorama of the city

Fascinating Concept but Without Water it Does not Impress
Apr 2017 • Couples
The Cascata Monumentale is a fascinating concept which could have been amazing to behold if there was water flowing through it. That said, it would seem like a waste to flow water into the sea. I may have missed it, but I did not see any explanation about what we were seeing at the site. If you go, read about it on the internet beforehand. The best part was having a gelato after climbing the steps.

Nice view

The port of Leuca is a postcard quality place. The best view you can get from the Cascata Monumentale. Although not working at the time of our visit, it is still worth visiting due to the nice views, and the proximity of the Santuario di Leuca.

Cascata Monumentale, Leuca
Jan 2016 • Solo
It's a man-made waterfall, built in the end point of Puglia Aqueduct. It occupies the whole side of the hill, on top of which a Basilica is located. Leuca was called by Romans "Finis Terre", where the land ends and the see starts - that is the symbolic meaning of the waterfall. The water arrives by the aqueduct to the end of the land, blessed (in the basilica) and returns to the sea. This monument is a "stonefall", actually, the most part of the year, but in summer, every Friday at 10 pm the water is released and it turns into a spectacular waterfall.There are 300 steps on each side, lamps... Only for about one hour but it is spectacular.
