Trip Advisor has two listings for this castle under two different names - The Castle of Panagia and The Virgin of Panteli Castle. I think Leros has only one castle, so don't try to find both. I think it was founded as the Panteli Castle...More

Of corse is the same castle. Panagia means Virgin Mary on Greek, so the castle of Panagia is the castle of a Virgin. U can seen it stand alone on the highest point of the island.
