Photographer's Note

Finally a new photo, I'm presenting you Fiskardo once more. Because I like this town in north Kefalonia so much!

Large photo with full details available, highly recommended!
Also map info available -> zoom out to see the location

The left part of this photo can be viewed in even more detail here, another LP!

[Photo scene info]
Well, it's Fiskardo and I've posted info on this little harbour before. This city is the only city where buildings we're not ruined during the earthquakes of 1953. There are houses dating from the 18th century. Fiskardo's houses are the oldest on the island! On the rest of Kefalonia houses needed to be rebuild after the earthquakes, so you won't find these pastel colours often in other towns on Kefalonia. There are even more extreme pastel coloured houses, which you can see here (but it's not such a nice photo)
The population is nowadays : ~150 inhabitants (except in the high season period, then it's considerably higher)

Fiskardo is a small picturesque fishing village and has the northernmost harbour on Kefalonia. A Fiskardo holiday is set among superb rugged hills and beautiful Kefalonia landscapes full of cypress trees and olive groves. Fiskardo is about 30 miles from the capital. Colourful traditional houses overlook a small cosy working harbour lined with restaurants. Fiskardo has good views across the water to the dramatic outline of the island of Ithaka.
