Argostolion Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 38 photos
It is the biggest town of the island with rich trade activity and a well-organised port.
It was built at the heart of the gulf of Koutavos .
Before the earthquakes of 1953, the town had many imposing houses with beautiful facades which were an example of the local architecture.
All those buildings they were destroyed by the earthquake. However, the new town was built with respect to the old local style.
It was built in 1813 under the responsibility of the Colonel de Bosset (from Switzerland) on behalf of the English. The date of the construction used to be written on a plaque on the obelisk standing in the centre of the bridge. However, it dosn't exist anymore.
