Cape Lefkata (South-western tip of the island)

Believed to be the white cliffs mentioned in Homer’s Odyssey and the location of the Gates to the Underworld, it is also the place where the poetess Sappho took her own life. Although no remains exist, it is also the location of the Temple of Delfinos/Apollo, where sacrifices to the gods took place and where convicts plunged to their deaths as penance for their crimes.
