Information about Lefkes

Lefkes Paros: One of the loveliest villages of Paros, Lefkes is situated in the central part of Paros, 11 km south east of Parikia. Lefkes has 500 inhabitants and is built at an altitude of 300 metres above the sea level, on a verdant hill covered with olive trees and pine trees and offers a breathtaking view of Naxos Island.

This beautiful village used to be the capital of Paros during the Middle Ages and is full of little traditional whitewashed houses, mixed with Venetian architecture, wonderful churches dating from the 15th century, whitewashed windmills and beautiful dovecotes. The charm and the beauty of Lefkes are still untouched by mass tourism, which help it maintain its authenticity.

Rare and valuable Byzantine icons are housed in this church and are very worth-seeing. In Lefkes are also the Folk Art Museum which exhibits various local tools and clothing and the Museum of Aegean Folk Culture.

From this marvelous village, the Byzantine Road, a paved footpath dating from the Byzantine period, leads to the village of Prodromos and ends up to the sea.

    Loved the family atmosphere
    Magnificent village in the mountains. No view to the sea but to the wild landscape of Paros. I loved the white houses and the arched streets. I also loved the grandmas who were watering the gardens and the grandpas playing cards in the square. Have a Greek coffee on the pot in the square under the plane tree. Lefkes was the first capital of Paros many decades ago. Today they are not tourist spot but a lovely village away from mass tourism. You have a car/ motoribke to go there. I don't know if a bus goes to Lefkes, normally it goes, but we had rented a motorbike to get around the island more easily. Around Lefkes, there are lots of churches and monasteries.
