ARGOSTOLI CITY

Argostoli, with a population of 8000 people, became Cephalonia’s capital in 1757. Even though many of the town’s imposing mansions were destroyed during the 1953 earthquakes, the new town which was built kept the quaint, Ionian style with well-laid out streets, spacious squares, many trees and alleys and a very lively port. In the centre of the city there are the Administrative House, the Town Hall, the Archaeological Museum, the Korgialenio Popular Art Museum, the Korgialenios Library and the newly-built "Kefalos" Theatre. At the port, the visitors can see Nikos Kavadias’ bust gazing to the endless sea. Kavadias was a poet who loved and wrote about the sea during his whole life. From the few works of the island’s British period which the earthquakes didn’t destroy is Koutavos bridge, built in 1813, which connects Argostoli with the opposite coast. Walking along Lithostroto (stone-paved street), the town’s central street, take a minute to visit Aghios Spiridonas’ church and Kambana square. Reaching the street at the port, you will see the market full of fresh fish and sweet-smelling fruit and vegetables. Further down many pastry shops and restaurants invite you to taste the local dishes.
