Short Description
leros Situated between Patmos and Kalimnos, Leros is an island of small fertile íalleys sandwiched between rolling green hills, deep coves and pretty beaches.

Leros' topography has given rise to many villages. The most important is the capital, Agia Marina - united with two other villages, Platanos and Pandeli, on the back side of the hill - a collection of little white houses, neoclassical buildings and narrow alleyways.

It starts at the seaside and gradually climbs up the sides of the hill, whose summit is dominated by the sombre remains of a Byzantine castle. Of special significance during Byzantine times, its shape is that given it by the Knights of St. John, who arrived in Leros in the 14th century. Still standing today are the circuit wall and the church of Our Lady within it.

leros Laki, 3 kilometres south of Agia Marina, is the island's port. It is built at the back of a deep, practically enclosed bay, whose mouth is only 500 metres wide. This is one of the largest and best natural harbours in the Mediterranean.

Alinda, Xirokambos and Partheni are charming seaside villages, while you'll fénd wonderful swimming at the beaches of Agia Marina, Pandeli, Vromolitho, Alinda, Laki, Merikia, and Xirokambos, to name a few.
