The Ionian Islands region
Kefalonia is the largest island in the Ionian Sea. It has an area of ??781.5 square kilometers and the population at last census was around 40,000 residents.
According to tradition the name derives from the first inhabitants on the island, the mythical hero Cephalus. It is believed that Kefalonia was created during a major earthquake, something that probably occurred as it is located right on a major seismic fault in the Ionian Sea.
Kefalonia is widely referred into the ancient transcripts saved and recovered nowadays, while Homer's Ithaca is well known throughout the world through the famous Homer's epics, which widely have been studied.
Kefalonia is called the "island of bizarre" because of the number of unusual phenomena recorded on the island. The coastline and its length of 254 km, reveals a rich horizontal division. Strips of land protruding into the sea, forming the peninsulas of Paliki in the west and Erisou in the north. The sea also forms many broad coves and bays. The main ports are the port Sami, which is opposite Ithaka, the port of Poros located at southeast of Sami and the port of Argostoli to the west of the island, which was a natural strategic naval base in the ancient times. The bays of Myrtos and Athera in the north and the bays of Lourda and Katelios in the south boast charming beaches attract many visitors each year. The geological phenomena of Kefalonia are the so called Katavothres (water sinks), the Drogarati cave and the cavelake of Melisani.
The island's highest mountain is Mount Ainos, with an elevation of 1628 m; to the west-northwest are the Paliki mountains, where Lixouri is found, with other mountains including Geraneia (Gerania) and Agia Dynati. The top of Mount Ainos is covered with Abies cephalonica (fir trees) and is a natural park.
The island boasts many attractions, ranging from the natural landscape and beaches and ending at the great creations of those who passed through Kefalonia during the centuries. The most important are the Castle of St. George, the cave-lake of Melisani, the Drogarati cave with its stalagmites and stalactites, the Archaeological Museum of Argostoli, the monastery of St. Gerasimos, the beaches of Myrtos, Antisamos, Xi, Makris Gialos, Lourdas, Trapezaki.
