Lefkes, Paros
(4.6/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
VIsit the highest village on the island of Paros, Lefkes, and explore the narrow streets lined with whitewashed houses and Byzantine churches. Home to just 500 permanent residents, this tiny settlement sits on a rocky hill covered with olive and pine groves. Often overlooked by tourists, the village maintains a slow-paced way of life. Be sure to see the community's most important architectural landmark, a Byzantine church made of gleaming white marble. Nearby, you can also stop into a small folk art museum, featuring a display of local tools and traditional clothing. Plan to visit Lefkes and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Paros attractions using our Paros itinerary builder.

  • Beautiful village, offering breathtaking views. A wonderful Church, behind the Church quiet cemetery with cypresses, on tracks running around lizards I imagine such awesome lizards, cute coffee shop opposite the Church, directly beneath a blossoming bugenvilliej. Narrow streets, wonderful texture for a photo. Great place for a walk for half a day. We went here this morning and have not regretted, because dinner is already becoming hot. To Lefkesa is easily accessible by public transport. If you have your own transport, no problems.

  • Lefkes is a fairly large village, only the alleys of the Center are pretty and full of charm. The Church is also worth the visit.

  • He need to get lost in this lovely village heights, July August I don't know.! May and September is a quiet Canary. In front of the Church on the left "face" there is a small tavern, very good white wine and especially the best pastries on the island "3000kl for 100 gr" it's divine and you're facing the Church! The lemon of lefkes are big as from Grapefruits. View over the Bay of Naoussa.
