Administration

The regional unit Lefkada is subdivided into 2 municipalities. These are (number as in the map in the infobox):

  • Lefkada (1)
  • Meganisi (2)
  • Prefecture

    As a part of the 2011 Kallikratis government reform, the regional unit Lefkada was created out of the former prefecture Lefkada (Greek: Νομός Λευκάδας). The prefecture, created in 1864, had the same territory as the present regional unit. At the same time, the municipalities were reorganised, according to the table below.
