Lefkas / Lefkada sights

On the tip of Cape Lefkas, in the south of the island, are a few remains of an ancient Temple of Apollo. This is also the place where the famous lesbian poet Sapho committed suicide by jumping off the 70 meter high cliff into the sea.

In Nidri there is a tomb from the Bronze Age.

At the entrance of the island from the mainland are on both sides the remains of a fortress from the 14th century. This ancient castle is called Agia Mavra and was built to protect the old city. There is also a beautiful church.
