This museum and library has so much history. I would love to hear personal reviews if anyone has been. It is housed in an old mansion that was owned by the Typaldi-Iakovatios family. It is one of those places that survived after the massive earthquake that hit the island. However, it did sustain some damage during it. The mansion was restored in 1984 and is now home to a vast collection of books (around 20,000) and other collectibles.
Just so that any travelers are aware, there was an earthquake in Kefalonia last week so there might be a few aftershocks. Greece is known for earthquakes, so this is nothing new and many of the buildings are built to withstand earthquakes
Covid-19 has somehow affected us all over the past year, and now many people are looking for a safe, yet relaxing holiday to unwind and de-stress for a while. Kefalonia’s hospitality is still second to none; we always offer an open, warm and friendly welcome (even when keeping health protocols)!
