Argostoli is the capital of Kefalonia, located in one of the largest natural harbors in the Mediterranean. For centuries, it has been known as a calm retreat for sea-beaten sailors.
Although the city was almost completely destroyed in the 1953 earthquake, it was rebuilt with the aim of retaining most of its traditional design, giving the town a unique combination of modern utility and old-world sensibilities.

Korgialenios Library

The Korgialenios Library has a history as colorful as the books it houses–founded in 1924, it officially opened its doors in 1926, then situated in Korgialenios Hall. Its first collection was comprised of books that were re-appropriated from the old public library, as well as from Marinos Korgialenios’ private volumes. During the earthquake of 1953 however, the building was destroyed, and the books were transferred to the Harokopio Foundation. Korgialenios Library underwent complete restoration, and with the help of benefactors, the building is once again home to this collection as of 1963.
