Lefkada is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea on the west coast of Greece. It is especially known for being one of the two Greek islands (the other is Euboea), to which the access, today, is by road.
The peculiarity that characterizes the city of Lefkada, the capital of the island is that the mainland is connected by a long causeway and floating bridge, offering an easy access to and from the island.
In this 1974 film, we watch shots from the canal, the surrounding settlement, the thick chain that mobilizes the ascent of the floating bridge which rises for the passage of the ships, the small ferry boats for the transportation of the people and the vehicles, views from the castle of Agia Mavra which dominates the entrance of the island of Lefkada and is one of the most imposing medieval buildings in Greece.
Finally, we see the ferry boat that departs from the island to the coast of Aetoloakarnania.
