CASTLE OF ASSOS

(0 votes)

One of the two castles that should not be missed in Kefalonia. Genuine sample of the military art of the Venetians, who wanted to establish a strong castle with a permanent population.

It is built on the peninsula of Assos, in highly strategic position and now you can enjoy the view and see what is left of its former glory.

Some of the ruins of the castle walls that reach 2000m. have survived until today, and the residence of the Venetian ruler (since 1593 it was the seat), the barracks and the church of San Marco. Large and impressive vaulted entrance of the castle of Assos preserved in good condition.
