Assos Peninsula and Venetian Fortress
Much of Assos history revolves around the castle during the Medieval period when Kefalonia was under the Venetian dominion.
Plans to built the castle at Assos commenced in 1584 when the Kefalonian council sent a delegation to Venice, asking for the creation of a new fortress to protect the people from Turkish and piratical raids. In the event of a war or imminent pirate attack, the villagers would then be able to seek refuge within the fortress compound.
The Venetian’s aim was to create a powerful fortress-city,inside which a population of the community would permanently reside.
Agios Georgios was the only castle in the island at the time,but it didn’t provide adequate defence for the island , and so it was that the Assos peninsula was chosen as the location of the new castle. It was considered that the sheer cliff drops of the peninsula with aheight of 155 metres made the area naturally fort-like and virtually unconquerable. Contraction started in 1593 and the fortress was rapidly completed soon after 1595. Shortly after the castle was built. Assos became the capital of the northern Kefalonia for a few years.

We do not leave Myrtos until watching the sunset, it’s a unique experience.

Fiskardo free time- dinner
Fiskardo lies 54 Km northeast of Argostoli. It is a beautiful and quiet (with the exception of August) town with Venetian houses to be situated around a beautiful harbour. Part of Fiskardo charm is being the only town in Kefalonia not to have been devastated by the earthquake in 1953. It is a major sailing port.
