Just outside of the city and just opposite of the floating bridge (opened is around 40 m.) is the Venetian castle of Santa Maura. The castle is a model of military art. Within the city,there is the archaeological museum, which houses artifacts and finds from the Paleolithic age up to Roman times and the Lefkas’ Marina, which is considered as the biggest and the most organized in the Mediterranean.
