Assos Village

Assos is a small and picturesque fishing village 36 kilometers away from Argostoli. It is known for its imposing 16th century Venetian fortress. The fortress was built in 1585, when Assos became the capital of the northern part of the island, and it is a typical masterpiece of the Renaissance architecture Today, one can still see the ruins of the walls, the house of the Venetian chief-master, military buildings and St Marco's church.

The beach of Assos can be described as a "family" beach, as it is located at the centre of the village, facing the peninsula of the Castle, thus giving the impression of a protected lake. It is covered with pebbles and the seabed is very shallow and covered with white sand.
