Located on a long, sheltered bay on the northern tip of Cephalonia, lovely Fiskardo is unique on the island in that it was largely spared by the 1953 earthquake that devastated most of the other island villages. As a result, its waterfront is the only one here that still features the pastel-painted Venetian-style houses that once prevailed.
