the most northern town on the island is the jewel in the crown of Kefalonia.
Pastel coloured Venetian building looking down on the fisherman preparing
there nets for the next trip, Rows of boats tied along the L shaped waterfront
running parallel with the shaded restaurants that line quay all the way
Due to the earthquake of 1953 much of Kefalonia's old architect was destroyed
except for Fiskardo, which was passed by with much of the tremor absorbed
through the bed of limestone it sits on. There is a small museum just at
the top of the harbour with pictures of how the village was over the years,
well worth a visit.
There are of course several boat trips available from the harbour, or why
not try hiring your own motor boat and explore the horseshoe bays and lagoons
often only accessible by boat.
Like the rest of the island the people are warm and friendly the restaurant
prices can be a tad higher than elsewhere but itís worth it just for the
are several gift, home craft, ceramic and souvenir shops dotted about the
village and itís worth exploring the side streets to find the hidden tavernas
Fiskardo is also and active ferry
port with boats to Ithaki, Lefkada and Patra on the mainland.
