One of the main attractions of Lefkada is the ancient city of Nirikos. It is located in Kalligoni area, 2 km outside the town of Lefkada, towards Nidri. The ruins of the city date back to the Archaic period. There are two cemeteries, monuments, farmhouses, port facilities and plenty more constructions. The city was abandoned by its inhabitants around 1300 AD and later destroyed by earthquakes.
