Medieval Castle

The Panteli Castle is a mighty medieval fortress overlooking the capital of Leros, the mountains, the sea and the villages of the island. It is also known as the castle of Panagia. Over the years, this Byzantine fortress, which has been well preserved until today, has become the island's trademark. The castle of Leros was probably built in the 10th century and was donated by the Byzantine Emperor Alexios I to the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian. This castle was used to protect Leros from any conqueror who threatened the island over the years. Today there are three circular walls and the church of Panagia is located on the west side of the castle.

Mizithra (curd cheese)

The mizithra of Leros is prepared in a special way compared to the mizithra of other islands of Greece and especially of the Aegean. Specifically, in Leros, they add sea water to the mizithra! The myzithra of Leros is distinguished as fresh and dry. The fresh is unsalted, only with the remaining salt from its preparation with sea water. It can be consumed alone or with thyme honey. It is also added as a material to the recipe of Greek cheese pie. Dry mizithra is produced like other dry cheeses and accompanies perfect fruits as well as pasta, since when heated it becomes like cream.
