Lefkes Paros: One of the loveliest villages of Paros, Lefkes is situated in the central part of Paros, 11 kilometres south-east of Parikia.

This beautiful village used to be ParosΆΆ capital during Middle-Age 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 Church of Agia Triada (Holy Trinity) is the villageΆs main church; it is a beautiful Byzantine church made of fine white marble, glimmering under the sun; rare and valuable Byzantine icons are housed in this church and are very worth-seeing.

In Lefkes are also a Folk Art Museum which exhibits various local tools and clothing and a Museum of Aegean Folk.

From this marvellous village, the “Byzantine Road”, a paved footpath dating from the Byzantine period, leads to the village of Prodromos and finishes down to the sea.

It is worth seeing the WarsΆΆ Memorial of the village and the nice buildings of the Elementary School, the Community Hall, which now houses the Municipal Department, and the building of the Nursery School. DonΆΆt miss to visit the traditional weaving and pottery workshops and the small Folk Museum and the Museum of Folk Culture, where you will see interesting collections of objects of every day life of Paros and of Cyclades and the Aegean Sea in general. Close to the settlement, a bit higher, you will see the old windmills reminding to the visitors how the people of the past took advantage of the air to produce energy.

If you feel like wandering around, you may go to the site of Apati you will be impressed from the perennial huge olive trees, a real monument of nature.
