Along the coastline south of Poros heading towards Skala you will find numerous pretty little coves and beaches for those who want to get away from the crowds.
The monastery of Atros is situated 5 kms above the town of Poros. It dates back to 1264 which makes it the oldest monastery on Kefalonia. It was destroyed 17 times (often by earthquakes) but was rebuilt each time by the monks. It was attacked 3 times alone by Saracens during the middle ages with 127 monks losing their lives in its defence. The road leading to the monastery is in extremely poor condition and should be taken with care. If you are walking - go early morning or in the evening to avoid the heat of the day.
The people here are open hearted and friendly - treat them well and you will have friends for life.
The ravine of Poros is one of the most beautiful geological phenomena of Kefalonia. It is an 80 metre precipice, with steep slopes. This wild and imposing landscape is connected to a strange legend that claims that the hollows in the rocks are the footprints of the huge supernatural feet of the hero Hercules.
Poros Kefalonia | Poros is lush and green and one of the three ports of the island with daily connections to Kylini and the Greek mainland. It has an attractive and compact centre with shops , bars and tavernas. After the earthquake of 1953 which destroyed the few fishermen's
houses, it was rebuilt at the foot of the mountains Pahni and Atros
