Fiscardo Bay and the Venetian Lighthouse

N 3827.629', E 2034.919'
2018-04-05
Our rating: 7.60
Overall rating:
Fiscardo is a small fishing village in the north of Kefalonia. Previously, here was the main port on the island, and now it is a quiet, peaceful place, with a small promenade and restaurants. The territory around the village is declared a nature reserve in order to preserve woodland and ancient architecture.

We stopped here to walk to the Venetian lighthouse. Parked near the beginning of the trail (N 38 27.726 E 20 34.714), there is a place for 1-2 cars.

The old lighthouse of the 16th century is abandoned and can be visited. The territory consists of a small house for the guardians and a courtyard with cacti.

In addition to lighthouses, here is also the ruins of a fortified early Christian basilica. The exact date of construction is not known, but it is pretty old.
