Lefkada Karia Village

Lefkada Karia: Karia is a beautiful mountainous village built at 500 metres altitude above the sea within a lush green area. It is located 13 km southwest of the centre of Lefkada and counts on 1000 inhabitants. The area is full of lush vegetation and natural springs.

The village is built according to the traditional architecture. Between the narrow alleys old houses and a couple of small churches are found. The picturesque square is surrounded by old plane trees and lovely cafes and is known as the locals spot.

This village is famous for its fine embroidery work reproducing the traditional motifs. Examples of this work are exhibited in the small Folklore Museum of the village. A lovely custom is revived by the inhabitants of Karia and every 11th of August a representation of a traditional wedding takes place in the village.
