Climbing up the mountain of Lefkada towards Englouvi, there is a sudden surprise you will find in this adventure in Lefkada. 

Four huge antennas are witnessing the Abandoned US Army Base, a ghost area with a wondering past, right at the edge of the steep slide of the mountain.

This NATO base was built almost 50 years ago, in the 60's by the American Army in the cold war.

As USA needed to keep an eye in the area during the cold war, they built that massive and super modern infrastructure, for its ages, with the huge antennas, in order to control the area.

The base was fully equipped with all the up to date facilities, although the remote location of the base made the procurement significantly difficult.

This base was build in the idea of independence and autonomy. Oil tanks, electricity generators or ruins of basketball courts to keep the soldiers fit, are among the things that someone can find here.

Its rising period lasted for almost three decades, and the base influenced a lot the local economy of the island of Lefkada.

Finally, in the early nineties after the fall of the USSR its operations were judged as obsolete by the US government, and it finally shut down.

Now it reminds more of a ghost area, but the view from here is extremely stunning. A great place for a tour while on holidays in Lefkada.

The shutting down was followed by the deliverance of the base to the greek army, that didn't bring any big change. An Abandoned US Army Base at the top of the mountain of Lefkada - Tripatricks

The Greek Army after keeping it for a few years inactive, it handed it over to the municipality of Karya village in order to renovate it and use it as a touristic attraction.

The lack of drinking water in the wider area, as well as its remote location, kept the costs really high to maintain such a project.

The base lies abandoned for almost 30 years now, and though it didn't have an official touristic ending, its creepy leftovers are still a unique touristic attraction of great mystery and lost memories.
