Map of Leros island Greece

Leros located in the Dodecanese archipelago between Patmos, Lipsi and Kalymnos, Leros is an island of small fertile valleys, rolling green hills, high cliffs, deep bays and numerous beaches and villages.

The most important city is Agia Marina, the capital, practically joined to two other villages, Platanos and Pandeli.

White houses, neoclassical buildings, narrow alleys and on the hill the remains of a Byzantine castle make this town a little gem not to be missed.Lakki, 3 kilometers south of Agia Marina, is the port of the island while Krithoni and Alinta, also close to the island’s capital, are the most famous tourist resorts with splendid hotels and excellent facilities.
