Leka, Samos Island

Southern to Karlovasi, at a distance of some 5 kilometers, it is situated the village of Lekka. The village has been named after an Albanian who took refuge to Samos, after 1715, when Ottomans had took possession the Peloponnese from Venetians anew and had persecuted the populations of the area. Lekka, like several villages of Samos, offers a breathtaking view of the northeastern part of the island, with the plain of Karlovassi, the mountain of Ambelos, the sea and the coast of Asia Minor in the distance. The residents live on agriculture, the most important cultivations being those of vineyards and of olive trees.

The central square of the village offers a nice view to the plain and the sea and several traditional cafés are arranged around a huge plane tree shading the site.

One kilometer northwestern to the village you will find the old settlement of Aghios Panteleimon, with the homonymous church situated by the ravine of Kastania, a place full of current waters, lush vegetation and surrounded by mountains; the place is accessible on foot. The locals use to call this settlement “Sourlaeoi”, after the name of the first resident whose name was Stamoulos Sourlis.
