Its name is due to the approximately 30 vliches (taps) gushing water along Amalis, the mountain at the foot of which Vlicho is located.
The village seems to have been resided by several conquerors in the yesteryears. It reached its peak development-wise in the first half of the 20th century (1910-1940). During that period, Vlicho was the hub of more than 10 merchant shops that transported goods from/to the island. Unfortunately, all faded away with the War of '40.
Nowadays, the charming setting featuring verdant mountains and lush green valleys encircling the beautiful coastal village has contributed to it becoming one of the most lovely settlements in Lefkada.
Many choose this destination for summer vacation, especially families who truly enjoy the relaxing yet charming atmosphere. At the main street, visitors will find plenty of shops, cafes and fish taverns.
Vlicho is definitely a good choice for a short excursion. On top of the promontory is the chapel of Agia Kyriaki.
