Lefkes, 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.
