Argostoli, the Capital City of Kefalonia

Argostoli is a cosmopolitan city and a favorite of visitors from all over the world. The central gathering place is Vallianou Square, named after the Cephalonian and national benefactor Panagis Vallianos. It is the perfect place to enjoy coffee, ice cream, refreshing drinks, and local food. In the evening, it becomes a meeting place for local residents and tourists. It is also full of children, who can play in a completely safe environment because the square is intended only for pedestrians

In the evenings, various cultural events and music concerts are organized on the square throughout the summer. An important part of local musical culture are Cephalonian cantadas, traditional songs accompanied by guitars and mandolins. Museums, the Lithostroto shopping street, coffee shops, restaurants, and the Napier Garden are located in the immediate vicinity of the square.
For film lovers, the outdoor movie theater Cine Anny, ideal for enjoying movies under the starry sky, is also close to the square.

If you visit Cephalonia, you will certainly find yourself walking down Lithostroto Street. Starting from Cabana Square, Lithostroto soon reaches Vallianou Square. The street is full of souvenir shops and cafes that can satisfy anyone’s taste. The center of Kefalonia is right here: all major holidays and religious events are celebrated precisely in Lithostroto Street.

Be sure to visit Saint Spyridon, an Orthodox church known for its gilded wooden iconostasis. Nearby is also the Catholic Church of Saint Nicholas, which is architecturally completely different.

There are countless sandy beaches near the town of Argostoli. The most famous among them is certainly the Costa Costa Beach, located a few kilometers from the city center. The water sports center of Kefalonia is located on Makris Gialos Beach in Lassi, where you can have fun riding inflatables, skiing or windsurfing.
