Kefalonia villages

Most villages on Kefalonia were highly affected by a strong earthquake in 1953, which destroyed many houses and public buildings. The only village that came untouched by the earthquake was Fiscardo, on the northern side of the island, which stands out for its colorful walls and the picturesque port.
Some hotels and accommodation are located around these villages.
After you have seen the best Kefalonia villages, you can also find information about the best beaches.
