Location: Lagadakia

The lighthouse of Gerogompos in Kefalonia is an impressive sight located on the southwest corner of the Paliki peninsula. It was originally built in 1907 by British engineers and played an important role during World War II. When the Germans departed from the island after the war, they destroyed the lighthouse, which was then rebuilt in 1947. For a while, the Greek Navy used to own it, but nowadays, it is autonomous.

It is 13 meters high, and its range reaches about 32km. Its ground floor consists of a hall, a kitchen, three bedrooms and a WC with a shower. Unfortunately, visitors cannot enter the lighthouse.

As it is situated on an elevated spot, the area allows incredible panoramic views of the sea and the horizon. Admiring the golden sunset from the lighthouse is certainly worth it, and reaching it is not that difficult, as there is a dirt road available.
