Overview

A picturesque mountain village looking down on the seashore of Gialos. Following the route south along the rocky southern coast through rugged but extremely beautiful countryside one can get to the marvellous beaches of Engremni and Porto Katsiki. At the termination of the route we arrive at the southernmost point of the island, the Lefkata Promontory. It is near here that the ruins were discovered of an ancient temple of Apollo Lefkata. According to the ancient poet Menander, the poetess Sappho of Lesbos fell from here onto the rocks when Phaedon didn't return the love she had for him. In front of us is the Ionian Sea. The sunset from here is a sight worth seeing.
