Just a few kilometers from Argostoli, you can find one of the most famous trademarks of Kefalonia, the lighthouse of Saint Theodore. Situated on a man-made cape, Saint Theodore’s Lighthouse is the ultimate spot for romantic moments and breathtaking photographs.
It’s a white, 8 meter tall lighthouse inspired by the Doric architectural style, which was originally built during the time Charles Napier was governor of Kefalonia. Completely destroyed by the earthquake, it was reconstructed by the architect Takis Pavlatos in 1964 maintaining its original architectural character.
Also known as “Fanari” (the greek word for lantern), Saint Theodore’s Lighthouse is the perfect spot for watching the sunset, taking romantic pictures or just enjoying the view of Lixouri. It’s definitely worth a visit.
