Kokolata


Kokolata is a small village just 3 km from Argostoli with 176 residents who are mostly engaged in agriculture and animal raising.

The geographical location of the village, offers visitors an endless view over the Argostoli Bay and the Castle of St. George which is within walking distance.

In Kokolata there are not many accommodations, only some villas or studios for rent. Within less than 1 km from the village, there are large supermarket chains and of course just 3 km away is Argostoli, the island’s capital.

After the excavations, Mycenaean period tombs were found with many utensils which are exposed in the Archaeological Museum of Argostoli.

In 1953 the village was totally destroyed by the deadly earthquake but the inhabitants built it from scratch and today there are only a few crumbling houses reminiscent of the past.

The church of Agia Paraskevi in Kokolata, exists with its large courtyard and stone benches.
