7 water mills trail, near Sami

by Anna Votsi

3 km from Sami on the main road leading to the capital, Argostoli you can stop for a 2,5h refreshing walk. It is an easy trail you can enjoy together with your family and stop for a pic nic!

This is a very different side of Kefalonian nature. A fordable walking trail by the river, passing through lush vegetation, flowing clear waters, magical sounds and impressive human stone creations. On the way to the venetian stone bridge you will pass by 7 ruined water mills, used for grinding wheat and corn, destroyed on the earthquakes of 1953. Depending on the rainfall, the water flows normally until the end of May, sometimes even later in June.
