Kefalonia Greece Museums
The island of Kefalonia in Greece is really a jewel that has enchanted those who wanted to spend their holidays here. It is a place that goes beyond colourful festivals and open-air performances and is an outstanding archaeological museum that presents artefacts from the Trojan wars. The Maritime and Environment Museum houses a wide range of exhibits on the history of marine life and the environment in the Mediterranean. It creates an excellent collection of art, history, architecture, archaeology and history in general, as well as a great museum for visitors.
The collection includes a wide range of antique artifacts, such as ceramics, glass, bronze and glassware, as well as sculptures, paintings and other works of art.
The Stavros Museum is also located on Pilikata Hill and is the place where the finds from the excavations are kept. The artefacts found in the museum are equipped with historical information and provide valuable insight into the cultural evolution of the time. The most important exhibits include tombs that testify to the prosperity of that time, as well as the remains of people from different periods of history. This museum contains archaeological finds in Piso Aetos from the geometric (Roman) period and ceramics from this geometric period.
One of the most important exhibits is a collection of ceramics from the ancient city of Piso Aetos, one of the most famous archaeological sites in Greece, as well as the remains of people from this period.
With an area of 780 square kilometres, Cephalonia is one of the largest islands in the Aegean Sea and the second largest in Greece. It is known for its natural caves and valleys throughout the island and also hosts the ancient city of Piso Aetos and the neighboring islands of Kavala and Epirus. The department of Kefalsonia includes all the major islands and several smaller islands such as Kalymnos, Idomeni, Ephraimia and Kostasia. It is also an island divided into two parts, with a total area of 1.5 million square kilometers.
To illustrate this rich history, there are numerous museums in the villages of the island dedicated to all aspects of life that have influenced the inhabitants over the centuries. One of the most popular museums is this one, which takes us directly to the ancient city of Piso Aetos, where some of the most famous statues of Greece stand. There were no such statues in ancient Greece, and some are ridiculously large, like those that came straight from the 2010 Clash of the Titans.
This castle was actually a castle and was built by the Venetians in the 14th century after the Turks and pirates had passed through. The Italian military administration, Cephalonia and the other Ionian islands came under its administration. During this war it also participated in a Greek civil war and became part of Greece in 1949.
Even today, the relationship between Greece and Italy is very different from before, and Germany still has a lot of catching up to do to understand the years of occupation of Greece.
If you want to deepen your knowledge of island culture and learn more about the general Greek history, these museums are excellent places to visit. I recommend visiting them after visiting the Akrotiri archaeological site and looking at the context of each exhibit in the exhibition. You can also visit the Archaeological Museum of Kefalonia, the Museum of the Greek Orthodox Church and the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography to learn more about the island and its culture.
The museum was built in a place donated by the city of Corfu and housed in an old church in the town of Kefalonia, opposite the city centre.
The bridge was built by the Romans over 2000 years ago and has not been restored since the last reconstruction in the 17th century by Ottoman Turks who then occupied Greece. During the Nazi occupation of Greece during World War II, Nazi troops carried out a brutal occupation during which the city of Corfu was overrun.
Kefalonia was one of the first inhabited areas of Greece, as shown by the many fossils, plant and animal bones found in Scala Fiskardo, the tools found in the seeds, and many fossil plants, animals and bones found on Skalas Fisksardo. Several ancient tombs have been found, revealing extraordinary and well-preserved finds, the Mycenaec tomb of Poros being of great importance. This is the most incredible and beautiful site to visit and travel all over Greece.
There is a lot going on here, the church of Agios Gerasimos, monasteries and caves, but the Natural History Museum is also a great place to learn about the history of Cephalonia and its inhabitants, as well as ancient Greece. In addition to the other archaeological sites of the island, it is also the place where religious tourists can find some of the most important archaeological sites of Greece, such as the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George and the Byzantine Orthodox Cathedral of Athens. With all these and other archaeological interests on the Kebale Islands, it can be fun to spend some time in the Natural History Museum and also enjoy other sights while you are there.
