Lefkes is one of the prettiest and best-known villages of Paros, built on a verdant hill in the heart of the island, surrounded by pine and olive trees and the smell of oregano and thyme. This was Paros’ first capital, with houses built in tiers up the hill like an amphitheatre. You’ll find Cycladic architecture, neoclassical buildings and boutique accommodation all coexisting harmoniously.Get there by bus or taxi or park your car and walk, wandering through its peaceful alleys admiring the flower-filled patios. You’ll find plenty of little shops selling local goods (pottery, honey, figs etc) on the main street, called Ramnos, and a couple of folk museums. The view from 300m up is one of the best on Paros, and the island you can see is neighbouring Naxos. Don’t forget to explore the amazing Byzantine road, a 1,000-year-old marble-paved path, built to connect Marpissa with Parikia.
