Lefkada Town is located on the north coast of the island and lies around a natural harbor. Earthquakes in 1948 and 1953 destroyed most of the location and only a couple of churches and monuments survived. After that, it was rebuilt with houses and buildings covered in corrugated metal siding. The narrow alleys throughout the city and the metal faced structures create a charming experience. Agios Spyridon marks the central square of the capital, a 17th century church that has survived the earthquakes. Cafes and shops, Mela Street and the Archaeological, Gramophone, Folklore museums line this area.
