We start from the square of Sami and we follow a beautiful path through a forest of holy trees, arbutus, oak trees while ascending towards the ancient castle called Paleokastro. According to the historian Thucydides, this two-sided Acropolis of Ancient Sami protected one of the four city-states of Kefalonia.

We enter the Acropolis through the main gate, built with impressively great in size stones and we start touring the castle. Parts of the wall still stand majestically overlooking the incredible views of Ithaca, Sami, Agia Efimia and Antisamos. Then following a gentle route we end up at the opposite peak of the Acropolis the” Kyatis” where the Monastery of Agioi Fanentes was founded in 1265 AD. We continue our tour in the monastery as well as in the church of Ag. Nikolaos where the murals have been preserved over the centuries. Then we follow a wooded downhill path where we take the last photos before returning to Sami where our hike ends.
