“Faros” Fiscardo Trail – Venetian Lighthouse & Byzantine Basilica

“Faros” trail is one of the three walking trails in Fiscardo that were recently organised by “Asteris” club along with the Panhellenic “Greece’s Paths” team.

It leads to the old Venetian Lighthouse of Fiscardo and to the ruins of a unique monument, the most prominent pre-Christian basilica (6th-8th century) of the Ionian Sea Islands.

This is a very easy path starting from the end of the port of Fiscardo, offering great views of the village. The visit to the lighthouses will take you approx 15min and you can come the same way back to the village or do a circular walk (check the relevant signs)

Part of the path is covered in the rich coastal cypress forest, perennial pines, oaks and arbutus of the Erissos peninsula of Fiscardo, providing enough shade for travelers to meander without worries even in the summer time.

This is a great walk for families and individuals, when my son was 4 years old took this lovely trail together.
