The village of Perigiali is located on the road leading to Nydri,
a short distance after Nikiana.
Through the harmonious combination of natural beauty, tradition and modernization
it appears both simple and wonderful and is sure to charm any visitor with its
fascinating view of the verdant islets. Its beaches are many and the waters are
very clean, whilst its proximity to Nydri,
one of the main ports of Lefkada,
makes it even more busy. It is worth taking a visit to the Kokkini Eklissia (‘Red
Church’) built in 1478 which, in 1821, was turned into a base of operations
for the leaders of the revolution, and also to the church of Agion Panton and
the settlement of Platystomo,
with its impressive panoramic vista. The folklore tradition which flourishes in
the area, along with the unspoiled hospitality of the locals will never be forgotten.
