Argostoli is the largest of the Kefalonia villages with a population of 14.000 inhabitants. It is the capital and main port of the island. The modern and cosmopolitan town of Argostoli is very busy and has many interesting features and activities to offer. It has an attractive coastal road promenade which is boarded by palm trees and beautifully paved with colourful pebbles from the sea. The road ends at the small ferry quay where boats depart for the town of Lixouri every half an hour and where little fishing boats are moored. The central square of the town called Plateia Valianou is a large and pleasant square surrounded by many restaurants, cafes and bars. During the summer evenings, the square gets crowded because it is the place where the locals go for their traditional evening walk. The pedestrian Lithostroto Street (Cobbled Street) is the commercial street of the capital and is full of shops. There one can admire the beautiful church of Saint Spyridon and the interesting clock tower of Campana Square.
