The Ionian Islands region
According to mythology the first human settlement in Kefalonia took place by Ptereleus after his father Tafius that was Neptune’s son. The first inhabitants of Kefalonia were named Tafii or Televoes. During an expedition for the conquest of the island Ptereleus was defeated by Amfitrio- King of Thebes who offered the island as a reward to Kefalus.
The mythical Kefalus was first ancestor of the race of the Kefalides in Attica and it was the man who was in fact the first King of Kefalonia giving it his name.
There are several controversial to each other theories in the greek mythlogy about Kefalus. We come to realise out of several resourses that he was son of Mercury or according to others son of Aiolos or Diion- king of Fokida. When he accidentally killed his wife during hunting, he was exiled by the Arios Pagos.
According to others kefalus was purified of the homicide by the Thebeans and thus found himself to what we call Kefalonia in our days following Amfitrio to the expedition against Ptereleus.
Kefalus chased the Teleboes out and settled himself in the island. He had many sons; Cranius, Paleas, Pronissos and Samos each of which founded a city. Another son of his, Arkissius was later on father of Laertes and grandfather of the leggendary Ulisses.
Another well-known myth is also that of the abduction of Kefalus by Io who chased him to Syria in order to be unified with him.
Despite the doubts about which Ionian island makes today’ s Omeric Ithaka, the certain thing is that what we call Ithaka and Kefalonia today,both made part of the leggendary kingdom of Ulysses.
It is a fact that nobody can feel bored in Kefalonia. Apart from the magnificent natural beauties on the summer holidays in Kefalonia there are also sights that worth seeing which will content any kind of traveller and will captivate you.
The trip to Kefalonia begins with the natural environment and above all the beaches that are unique natural monuments themselves. The intense morphology of the island has created some beautiful beaches. In every spot of the road, one will come across to a new surprise. Do not just stick to the well-famed names of Mirtos, Platis Gialos and the Xi beach. Do not hesitate to cross a few more kilometres and a new – not that well - known but the same beautiful Kefalonia wll be revealed to you.
There are many caves in Kefalonia as well.
In many of those the roofs have collapsed creating thus peculiar geological phenomena such as the lake-cave of Melissani. Others will impress you with their exquisite natural decorations and acoustics such as the Drogaratis cave.
