Lefkes, Paros

#4 of 74 in Things to do in Paros
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • It immediately feels well. A calm atmosphere and relaxed lifestyle. Streets and well-kept houses. We go around 5 pm and took a lemonade House facing the Church that we could visit around 6 pm when it opens. Cicadas with us all along.

  • Small friendly village where it is good to wander the streets. We then borrow the byzantine road to reach the village of podromos or a stop at the local to eat tavern is essential.

  • We visited the town in the evening, after dinner. Very impressive and full of life. Worth the climb on top of a hill.

Where to stay in Paros

Paros serves as a convenient base for exploring the Cyclades island group, so its best rooms near popular beaches fill up early in the season. Plan ahead and book your stay in Parikia, the island's biggest town, where you can choose from mid-range hotels and self-catering apartments offering modern amenities and quick access to the sea. Alternatively, consider the small fishing settlements scattered along the island's coastline, where locals rent out simply furnished rooms a walk away from secluded coves and Venetian ruins.
