Lefkada owes its name to the white (leukos in Greek) rocks that characterize the southern part of the island, the cape of Lefkata.The name of Lefkada was first given to the town and then to the entire island.
According to mythology, the poetess Sappho threw herself to the sea from these white rocks because she wasn?t able to endure the torture of her love for Phaon. Corinthians colonised the island during the 7th century BC and built the new town of Lefkas and started the construction of the canal that separates Lefkada from the mainland in 650 BC, turning Lefkada into an island.
During this period the island was constituted of many autonomous cities which kept on flourishing over the years.Set like a jewel on the translucent blue waters of the Ionian sea, the island of Lefkada combines tranquility, friendliness and inspiring natural beauty
Lefkada also took part in the Peloponnesian War (431-404 BC) helping its mother-city, Corinth, which was on the Spartans? side.In 343 BC, the island became an ally of the Athenians in order to fight the Macedonians, whom king was Philip II, but Athens lost the battle and Lefkada fell under Macedonian rule.
In the 21st May of 1864 a treaty was signed proclaiming the unification of the Ionian Islands (among which is Lefkada) with the independent and newly born Greek State.
