Location description from owner

The Ionian Islands region

Lefkada is a beautiful island within the Ionian Sea surrounded by a total of 24 islets - Aristotle Onassis. Skorpios being one of them. It connects to the opposite coast of Central Greece via a floating swing bridge (length: 50 m).

The bridge offers easy access to Lefkada to visitors from all over Greece. On Lefkada you will find noteworthy sights, churches and monasteries, picturesque villages, lush vegetation, idyllic coves of transparent, turquoise waters, busy and secluded beaches of stunning beauty, a significant cultural heritage and hospitable locals.

Lefkada

Lefkada town is the islands capital and port town. The town planning is a very particular one and resembles a fish backbone. There are picturesque alleys, small squares, traditional houses, elaborate belfries and paved pedestrian zones that give this town its character.

The city is surrounded by a canal and a lagoon, while, farther north, lies Gyra, a thin stretch of a sandy beach forming a circle, dotted with windmills and scant vegetation. The lagoon is one of the Ionian Seas most significant wetlands, protected by the Ramsar Convention as a wetland of international importance. There is also an ivari, a fish farm where fish grow in their natural environment.

In and around Lefkada Town you can visit:

. The Town promenade

. Agia Mavra fort, at the towns entrance, constructed by a Sicilian named Giovanni Orsini in 1300.

. Bosketo Park, where busts of the islands eminent scholars are to be found.

. The pedestrian zone along the coast, lined with the younger generations hangouts.

. The central square with many restaurants and cafes where Agios Spyridonas church is located (late 17th c.)

. Kouzounteli (or Kouzoumpei) area, where age-long plane trees stand next to traditional coffee shops that serve freshly ground coffee and soumada drink made from fragrant almonds.

. The Archeological Museum. Where finds (mid-Paleolithic times - 4th c. AD) come from tombs excavated at Nydri, burial grounds of the ancient town of Lefkada, etc.

. The Public Library. There is a wide collection of printed documents and post-Byzantine icons painted in the style of the Eptanesian iconography school by eminent religious iconographers such as Doxaras, Roussos, etc.

. Charamogleios Eidiki Lefkadiaki Library (a library treating exclusively local themes) exhibiting rare books, gravures and maps. The art gallery is often the venue for painting and photography exhibitions. The librarys collection has been included in the Guiness Book of Records.

. Pantazis Kontomichisa Folk Art Museum. Exhibits include a wide and rare collection of items related to local everyday life and work.

. The Phonograph-Memorabilia Museum whose exhibits include old phonographs, vinyl records, decorative antique items, old banknotes etc.

. The agelong Elaionas (Olive Grove).

. Megalos Avlaimonas and Mikros Avlaimonas wetlands, two natural-habitat fish farms near the city.

. The windmills at Gyra.

Events

. International Folklore Festival. As of 1962, bands and artists from all over the world meet in Lefkada every August and exchange the product of their cultural and artistic folklore in the fields of dancing, music, and traditional heritage.
