platanos lerosPlatanos is the second capital of Leros and is located between Agia Marina and Panteli. From here there the roads that heading down to Agia Marina, to Panteli and up the Castle. In the centre of Platanos is Roussou Square which has a plane tree in the centre.

The old tree was big and there was a fountain but it dried up and in its place there is a relatively new tree.

Right in the Square is the town hall of Leros built in neoclassical style from the beginning of the 20th Century.

Next to the town hall was the Club of Leros which remains closed, it would be a good idea for the Municipality of Leros to undertake the reopening of this beautiful building.
