Castle of Pandeli
Dating back to the 10th Century, the imposing Castle of Pandeli (also known as the 'Castle of our Lady') occupies a prime spot on the hillside above the island's capital. The castle once served as a look-out point the Turkish, Italian and German conquerors of Leros, and as such it suffered damage. The castle is now preserved and visitors can admire the its stone structure and the impressive views of the island's mountainous landscape.
Once an Italian Naval Base, the island of Leros was the target of sustained bombing during World War 2. Visitors interested in discovering the island's past can visit the War Museum in Lakki, where exhibits of war memorabilia and audio visual footage are available to the public.
One of the most popular sights on the island is that of the traditional flour mills that line the hillsides. The striking white structures are popular with photographers, and as such are some of the most photographed attractions on Leros.
