According to Kefalonia, Lakithra is a large village and old capital of the Livathos region. The view from the place “Kallithea” is unique. From that point you can see the wider area, the island of Zeus and Zakynthos in the background.
In the village there is the “rock of Byron”, from where the poet, who in 1823 stayed for a few months in Kefalonia, enjoyed the view and wrote poems. On this rock there is a memorial plaque with the signature “Byron” that reads: “If I am a poet I owe it to the air of Greece”.
On the main road there are shops and taverns. The road from Lakithra takes you in five minutes by car to Lassi and Argostoli.
