Argostoli is the capital of Kefalonia and is the biggest of all the towns and villages as well as being the main port of the island. It is situated on a peninsular and is a busy working port with ferries, private yachts and freight ships coming and going all year round. It has 14,000 inhabitants and itís a very busy little town offering various interesting sites and activities. Beautiful churches, superb buildings, interesting museums, striking squares and a pleasant coastal road are some of the wonders of the town. Numerous shops, restaurants, bars and accommodations can also be found. As with many waterfront towns there is a hive of activity all along it with many taverns, restaurants and shops. There is also an excellent fresh fruit and vegetable market open everyday. In 1953 a series of earthquakes flattened Argostoli and since then the town has been re-built, following the original street layout. Whether exploring, shopping or having a cold beer watching the boats going by, Argostoli is a town that is alive and vibrant
