KEFALONIA - GREECE
The island of Kefalonia is very mountainous, has many fruitful plains, amazing lakes and rivers, caves, thick and verdant forests and wonderful beaches with golden sand and crystalline waters. The countryside of the island is great for hiking. Old footpaths have been signposted and lead to monasteries, medieval castles, mountainous villages and secluded beaches.
Apart from the capital, Argostoli, the island of Kefalonia has a multitude of picturesque villages and small towns scattered all around it. The most famous of those villages is the particularly picturesque Fiscardo, the only village that wasn't destroyed by the disastrous earthquake of 1953, and which keeps its beautiful neoclassical buildings until today.
Because of its innumerable beauties and charms and for having everything to offer even to the most demanding visitor, Kefalonia is one of the most popular of the Ionian Islands.
