So many cities along the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas showcase architecture dating back centuries and even millenniums, so your first reaction when you see Argostoli’s profile along the port is that everything looks so new. It is. This small city of less than 10,000 people suffered heavy bombing during WWII. Even more devastating were four earthquakes that struck in 1953. After they destroyed most of the Kefalonia island, the majority of the islanders relocated. Those who stayed behind rebuilt the town.
