Prefecture of Cefalonia Things to Do: 82 reviews and 122 photos
A peaceful place where a re-constructed sea mill stands, north of Argostoli.
The sea here used to gush into underground channels, re-emerge on the other side of the island at Melissani and surge back with enough power to work the water wheels. An earthquake in 1953 supposedly altered the flow and thus put an end topowering the wheels .
The original Sea Mills were built in the 19th c., the idea of an Englishman wanting to utilise this natural power.
There was a taverna here, probably more nowadays.
A pretty place, just a pity someone had felt the urge to carve their names into the leaves of the prickly pears.
Address: Katovothres,nr. Argostoli, Kefalonia
Directions: A kilometre north of Argostoli, near the lighthouse.
