Castromonastiro Castle (near Kastro village, on Kalamos Islet off the southern coast of Lefkada)

Found near Kastro village on this beautifully lush little island off the coast of Lefkada you’ll be able to visit the remains of a fortified monastery whose history isn’t well documented. Fortified walls and vaulted ceilings still stand, and legend has it that the mother of one of Greece’s most famed revolutionaries, Giorgios Karaiskakis, is buried somewhere near the castle.
