Lefkes, Paros

(4.7/5 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.

  • The Poplar was the capital of the island many years ago, if my information is correct, it was capital of the pirate era, due to its mountainous location, was safe from pirates and for this reason was the capital. Up and about but 60-70 years there were big trade of the island. Now it's kinda deserted but remains very picturesque. Worth the visit.

  • 聖母百門教堂是 拜占庭式建築 帕羅斯島上僅存的完整古蹟 也是島上的信仰中心 在遊人幾乎佔據海濱街巷的時刻 這座教堂依舊撫慰著島上人們的心靈 教堂內保持完好 正門上方以多色石塊巧妙砌成穹窿 側門上方的濕壁畫則已模糊 教堂得迴廊與內部有許多拱形門 "百門"之名可能由此而來  more »
  • FOR GOOGLE MAP = > CORRECT PERFECT THE NAME OF VILLAGE. IT'S CALLED Poplar and not Leyke, Mayre, Grey etc. Thanks. Correct the tone to the word of the value.
