Opposite the floating bridge at the north end of the island is the Venetian castle of Agia Mavra. An archaeological museum is located in the centre of the capital town of Lefkadas.
On “Gyra” beach, located near the island’s main town, you can see four windmills still standing. Until the end of 20th century these windmills were used to grind large quantities of grain imported from Russia.
A few kilometres outside the town of Lefkada, near the village of Frini, lies the Monastery of Faneromeni, a museum of religious art. Approximately 2 km south of Lefkada is Kalligoni, where you can visit the ruins of the prehistoric city of Nirikos.
In 1963 Aristotle Onassis bought Scorpios, a small island opposite Nidri. Since that time Nidri has become well-known and popular. Daily excursions are available on small boats departing from Nidri to Scorpios and Meganisi.
