City/town information

Argostoli is the capital town of the picturesque island of Kefalonia, one of Greece’s beautiful Ionian islands. This area is an attractive seaside resort, having been mostly rebuilt following an earthquake in 1953 that actually raised the whole island some 60 centimetres in less than half a minute! The town was reformed to be in-keeping with the neoclassical style of its former architecture. Argostoli nestles around a sheltered bay, known as ‘Koutavos Lagoon.
