Hiking walks in Lefkada – Part 7

We continue our walking excursion at Lefkada, with the book «Lefkada on foot» by Lida Out.

Karia – Church of Ag. Konstantinos – Abandoned village of Rekatsinata – Karia
(2 hrs) 5.1 km

Start at the square in Karia (REK1). With your back to the square turn left towards the bell tower, go straight on to the left of the bell tower. The road turns right and you will pass a church (on the right) and a school (on the left). Walk straight on and approx 3 minutes later the road takes a sharp turn to the right in front of a yellow house with 4 lights. Here you turn into the narrow road to the left and then immediately right. At the crossroads (church with a bell tower on your right) go straight on, past the cypresses by the concrete road that turns to the left in an ascending path. After a couple of minutes you will reach a wider concrete road where you turn right. Pass an old house (on the left) and a new house (on the right). After 2 minutes the road forks, take the left fork and follow the ascending road past a big rock with a cave.

Follow this ascending road for approx 10 minutes and you will pass the church of Ag. Andreas (REK2). Five minutes later the road joins the abandoned village of Rekatsinata at a shrine (REK3). On your way back you will pass this village.
