Isaac Logar's curator insight, January 27, 5:03 AM
Cuando pensamos en Grecia, nos viene a la menta la típica estampa de casas e iglesias blancas con ventanas y cúpulas azules. Hemos de saber que ésta es una arquitectura exclusiva de las Cícladas, de manera que nuestras expectativas se pueden ver frustradas si viajamos a Lefkada o a las Jónicas, ya que la arquitectura de estas islas es muy diferente, aunque no por ello menos espectaculares ni importantes a nivel histórico.

De hecho, la ciudad de Kerkyra, en Corfú, es una de las ciudades con más riqueza arquitectónica de toda Grecia. Una riqueza que también se traslada a sus hermanas pequeñas, como es el caso de Lefkada, donde sus edificios -pese a que muchos sucumbieron con los terremotos de 1948 y 1953- aún conservan muchos rasgos de su influencia veneciana.

En este pequeño artículo podemos encontrar un poco de información que nos ayudará a valorar la arquitectura lefkadiense y a querer saber más sobre ésta. Por ejemplo, las casas de la aldea de Eglouvi, en el centro de la isla, tienen una arquitectura única en el mundo.
