Visiting Castles and Lighthouses on Lefkada.

There are several castles and lighthouses around to visit whilst staying on Lefkada Island in Greece and even a windmill.

On the Greek mainland Castro Grivas can also be visited - free to enter, this is a much smaller castle which is worth having a look at if you are nearbye but maybe it's not worth making a major diversion to go there. The reason we had visited Castro Grivas was that we went over onto the mainland to look at the large and imposing Aghios Georgios Castle which is clearly visible from Lefkada's saltpan area. In fact this castle was closed - the surrounding area was badly covered with bramble and thorn and the entrance locked.
We met some people who said they had gone into the castle the previous year and inside you could not really move around because of the heavy bramble and undergrowth - so unless you take a strimmer and a jemmy it's probably "one to miss" unfortunately.
