Municipality of Lefkada
The city of Lefkada
Municipality of Lefkada consists of 7 Communities (Lefkada, Apolpena, Tsoukalades, Aghios Nikitas, Kalamitsi, Alexandros, Nikiana, Katouna-Ligia, Kariotes). The town of Lefkada is the capital of the Prefecture and the main gate of the island. It is the economic and administrative seat of the Prefecture of Lefkada, surrounded by the ravishing water mirrors: the channel and the lagoon.
Its urban tissue follows the urban planning of Medieval Europe. The land planning was designed by Venetians and reminds, as it is said, of a fishbone composing the historical center of the modern capital.
The traditional multi colored houses and the churches (Vasilikes), dress the narrow streets mixed with the scent of flowers and the colorful gardens. Do not forget to visit the Archeological Museum, the Public Library which exhibits the Collection of Post Byzantine Icons of Heptanisian Art, and the Castle of Aghias Mavras. On the east side of the island, you can find the most modern marina of Greece, which can host 620 yachts offering the highest level of service. The island has spectacular beaches for swimming like Kastro, Gira, Aghios Ioannis, Pefloulia, Aghios Nikitas, Mylos and the well known Kathisma.
