The village of Lakka took its name from its position. Its houses are built at
a low elevation and close to the sea. The view from the lighthouse is superb.
It is worth visiting the Ellinospito, a kind of fort, where the locals sought
refuge when pirates came to the island. Similarly of interest is the Ipapandis
Church, built in 1774. Renaissance elements can be seen in its ornamentation.
One could also visit the Sea Cave of Ipapandis, which is said to communicate with
the church and with the Grammatikos Mansion.
