The Village history and present day

Paleros (Greek: Πάλαιρος) is an ancient city and a modern small town in Aetolia-Acarnania, Greece.

The city, which was called Zaverda up till 1928, is part of the Aktio-Vonitsa Municipality and its coast is bordering the Ionian Sea. It is situated between Mytikas and Vonitsa and it is only a half-hour drive from Lefkada. It is believed that the town existed during the Mycenean period, because parts of its city walls are dating back to the 2nd millennium BC. The harbour of Ancient Paleros was situated in what we know today as Pogonia, in the Southeast part of the peninsula. Remains of port installations have been found east of the village.

The city is thought to have existed during the Mycenean period, since parts of the city walls appear to date back to 2000 B.C. The nearby small port of Pogonia used to be the ancient port of Paleros. The citadel on the eastern part of the yard is separated by a partition and is considered to be the most ancient part of the wall, probably from the Mycenean period. The ruins are close to the present-day town of Paleros.

During the Roman times, at nearby Actium, Mark Antony and Cleopatra were defeated in a sea battle by Octavius. According to tradition, the salt lake was the saviour of Cleopatra, who hid her ships there.

In modern times, since the 2011 local government reform, Paleros has become is part of the Aktio-Vonitsa municipality.
