At a short distance from the city and just opposite the floating bridge, there is the Venetian Castle of Agia Mavra. In the city there is the archaeological museum with works of art and findings from the Paleolithic Period to Roman times and the Marina, one of the largest and most organized marinas in the Mediterranean. At the entrance to the city, next to the port, there is the park of the poets, which local people call “the boschetto”. It is also worth walking on the wooden bridge over the canal, right in front of the paved pedestrian street, near the port. On the beach of Gyra, near the city, there still stand four out of the twelve windmills, which used to grind large quantities of wheat from Russia up to the late 20th century. Near the village of Fryni, right off the city, there is the Faneromeni Monastery, which is now a museum of ecclesiastic art. At a distance of 2km off the city, you will find Kalligoni with the ruins of the pre-historic city Nirikos. Apart from that, the visitor can also enjoy the wonderful natural scenery of the island. The breathtaking beaches for which Lefkada is renowned all over the world attract millions of tourists from all over the world. Tourist guides have many times voted for the beaches of the island as the best in the Mediterranean, the most famous ones being Porto Katsiki and Egremnoi. There are also the Dimosari waterfalls, right off Nydri, and the Melissa Gorge in Sfakiotes. The Lefkata Cape in the southernmost side of the island makes the visitors marvel.
