"Platanos" and you are going to be impressed by the colors and the
view that is being offered by the adornment of the area: the most
beautifull burg of "Panagia".

a guard, who is protecting the whole island. It is from
the time of Byzantion and it stays stabil there from the
time of the Knights of "Agios Ioannis" and of the Enetians.
For that time was was the burg an alcazar against theirruptions.
In order to get the pleasure to be near it, there are
two ways: Either you use the comfortability of the car,
or you climb by foot to the top despite the tiredness
of the climbing. If you get confused by the countig of
the staires we inform you they are 500.
There could not be a burg without its Churche. So very
close to it, there is the Church of "Panagia". It has
a unique religious importance for the inhabitans of the
island and it consists of the copy-book higiographies.

of rare collecting value and also objects that are connected to
the Mass in the Church. Like all the other islands so also Leros
has its own Museum. It is in a building in a newclassical style
and it contains exhibits of high worth.
