Originally built in 1757 and almost completely rebuilt after a 1953 earthquake, Argostoli may be a modern city by Greek standards, but its attractions rival those found in more famous Greek towns. Argostoli is now the largest municipality in any of the Ionian Islands.
Argostoli's main square known as Plateia Valianou, where the muncipality's town hall and government house are situated, is the most ideal location to begin exploring the town.

At the end of Argostoli's bay lies the Koutavos Lagoon, a designated nature reserve for loggerhead turtles.
