Leros island is part of the Dodecanese and is located close to Kalymnos. It is also a few miles away from Patmos.
The capital of the island is Platanos which is at the east side. Agia Marina is the second harbor. In the capital there are a lot of traditional single-storeyed and two-story houses, and between them many stately homes, close to each other, creating narrow picturesque alleys, challenging you to wander them. The majority of the social activities happen at Agia Marina and Lakki, which are located at the center of the island and are connected via the main road axis.
Many small islands are scattered around Leros like Ag. Sunday and Pianousa opposite Panteli, the Archangel to the north and the Glaronisia with the Leros island between Leros and Kalymnos.
