The island of Leros is known for its relaxing atmosphere and the family beaches. Most sightseeing on this small island of Dodecanese is restricted to nice villages, beaches and some interesting places to visit. The most characteristic spots of Leros are the traditional windmill in Agia Marina and the Medieval Castle on top of the hill above Pandeli village. Do not also miss the War Museum in Lakki, housed in a true World War II tunnel and the seaside village of Alinda, with the organized beach and the night bars. From the ports of Lakki and Agia Marina depart excursion boats to close islands, such as Leros and Lipsi.
The small but interesting Ecclesiastical Museum of Leros is hosted in the church of Panagia Kastrou (our Lady of the Castle) in the Medieval Castle of Pandeli, which is built on top of a hill overlooking the sea.
This museum exhibits a collection of rare Byzantine icons, frescoes, clergy vestments and utensils of the Mass, Holy Gospels, manuscripts and candlesticks.
The museum also has an archaeological collection with ceramic vases and heads of marble statues. It also hosts the library of the church of Panagia of Kastro and of the Bishop of Leros.
