The popular website weather.com through a photographic tribute presents the 50 destinations with the most crystal clear waters in the world. Two Greek destinations stood out for their blue beaches. Lefkada in the twelfth place and in the thirtieth place Antipaxi.
Ioannis Zampelios (1787-1856).
After his studies in Italy and Paris (law, literature, philosophy), he returned to Lefkada and was appointed district attorney of the State of the Ionian Islands. Initiated into the Friendly Society in 1817, he came to be recognised as the top member of this society in Lefkada, due to his notable and courageous activities.One of his daring exploits was this: when after the outbreak of the Greek Revolution the British ordered Lefkadians to hand in their weapons to the district attorney’s office, Zambelios, himself the district attorney, collaborating with a boatman named Athiniotis, transported the seized weapons to the rebelling Akarnanians! He wrote twelve tragedies of nationalistic content, and lyric poetry in the idiom of the scholar Koraes.
Lefkada town today is the third capital of the island since the days of antiquity, when it was ancient Nirikos, situated in the Kouloumos area and then medieval Santa Maura (Aghia Mavra today) enclosed within the walls of the homonymous fortress (first decade of the 14th c). In 1684, on the initiative of the Venetian Francesco Morosini, the island capital was transferred to its present location, until then a small settlement of workers in Lefkada’s fishery and salt pans. The choice of location was for defence purposes, surrounded as it was by sea, providing the town with a protective shield.
