The Dodecanese Islands

Leros
A generally mountainous island with deep bays often full of greenery picturesque valleys and dented coasts. Agia Marina, capital of the island, is overlooked by the Franco-Byzantine castle. Lakki, only 3 km from Platanos, is one of the biggest natural ports in the Mediterranean, which can accommodate large ships and yachts. It has a yacht refueling station.

We'll get round the island by hiring a taxi or a small caique. Places we can visit include Xirokambos, Koukouli, Kithoni, Panagies, Blefouti, Gourna, Lepida, Temenia.
The ruins of a Byzantine castle remain on mount Kasteli. Every year, on the last Sunday in Lent, there is a Carnival in Leros - complete with chariot parade, fancy ball and wine festival.

Other memorable events on the island include Alinia, a cultural, sports and arts event taking place on the beach of the same name in the first half of August; also the Agia Kioura feast taking place in Partheni on the 19th of October, and the feast of Madonna of the Castle on the 14th of August.
