Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands. Green rocks plunge suddenly
into the deep blue waters. Picturesque villages and small beautiful towns
highlighted by old mansions and "humble" farmhouses, a little further over,
the ruins of some ancient city. Kefalonia has been justly called the island
of contrasts: Roman, Venetian, and Byzantine ruins, side by side with famous
beaches. The capital Argostoli is where the sea pours into spectacular swallow-holes and disappears endlessly
into subterranean tunnels forming a rare geological phenomenon. The water
reappears at Lake Melissani, an incredible semi-underground lake of clear turquoise and indigo water.
Nearby is the Drogorati cave, a large stalagmitic cavern of rare harbour, that has escaped the earthquakes
and retains the old style buildings.
