Little more than 1hr20mins from Rhodes or Kos, this little bundle of
authenticity has withstood everything its many invaders have thrown at
it and come away looking more beautiful than ever. Monasteries and
villages have merged so completely with their natural environment that
their stories seem to carry on the herb-scented summer breeze.
Meanwhile, the neoclassical buildings of the capital, Platanos, and
ochre-tinted houses of Agia Marina offer distinctive architectural
elements that give Leros a style all its own. No wonder it was chosen by
the goddess Artemis as the place to build her throne. If there’s one
view you could never tire of, this is it.
