TRADITIONAL GREEK LIGHTHOUSES

LIGHTHOUSE DUKATO

The Lighthouse of Dukato is ideally located in Cape Dukato (or Kavos Kiras) , which is down south of the island of Lefkadas. The lighthouse was built in 1890 on this white limestone cliff. The height of the tower is 14 metres and the focal height of 70 metres. It has an altitude of 4.5 meters. The lighthouse is a popular Scuba Diving center of Lefkadas, which affords a depth of 40 meters and visibility of 30 meters.

It is one of the most preferred Scuba Diving site in Lefakadas and it is here that you will come across plenty of lobsters. A word of advise for the the divers, if you are new to diving, then obviously this is not the place for you. The currents are pretty strong and only divers with past experience should venture and that too with an expert guide.

To reach the lighthouse, one has to take the trouble of driving along a 16 Kms. stretch of unpaved road. At times it can be terrible and one has to encounter little rocks every now and then along the way. One has to drive really slow while encountering all those bumps. Once you reach the lighthouse, it more than makes up for the harsh terrain. The views from the lighthouse are stunning with breathtaking scenic beauty of Ithaca and Kefalonia.

Kavos Kiras is located at the southwestern tip of Lefkada at the end of a long until recently unpaved, but now paved road. According to legend, the poetess Sappho leaped to her death from this cliff around 580 BC, following her unrequited love for Faonas (Phaon). By this time, the Cap was sacred to Apollo, protecor of the seafarer, god of purification and healing. On the site of the ancient temple stands the church of St Nicholas (17th c.). Unfortunately, visitors can not find any vestiges of the Apollos temple, because at this verry place soars the lighthouse.
