Lixouri

3.8
Beaches · Churches · Fishing Charters & Tours
Once serving as a favorite summer retreat for the children of the royal family, Lixouri today attracts crowds of holidaymakers to its narrow, paved streets, busy waterfront, and lovely central square surrounded by old-fashioned cafes. Hugging a blue bay, the second biggest town on the island was founded in the 16th century by the citizens of Pale, an ancient city, looking for a new home. Although the 1953 earthquake caused great damage, the city was carefully reconstructed to retain the traditional vibe. Whether you've planned your Lixouri holiday around the area's rich Byzantine heritage or its gorgeous red and white beaches, you'll remember it by the warm spirit of the locals who are famous for their musical talents. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Lixouri and add them to your vacation plans using our Greece trip maker tool.
