Location: Skala

On the edge of Skala village and near the beach lie the remains of a rural Roman Villa. Based on the conducted research, it was constructed during the 2nd or 3rd century AD and belonged to a prosperous Roman. It is the most important site of Roman origin in Kefalonia.

Book an unforgettable Tour in Kefalonia or get there with your own rental car.

The ruins of six spaces have been revealed, including the courtyard, and on the floor, one will notice some interesting mosaics. One of them depicts a man who is about to sacrifice a bull on an altar.

It seems that a fire destroyed the villa sometime centuries ago, while in the early Christian times, a church was constructed on top of part of it. The owner of the land accidentally discovered the existence of the villa, and subsequently, excavations began in 1957.
