Artist's Description

Standing sentinel above the reef off the greek island of kefalonia is this beautiful 6m venetian lighthouse surviving the destruction of the massive 1953 earthquake ( last used in 1892 when it was replaced by a nearby 14m Victorian square lighthouse). I loved it’s simplicity, beautiful stone and perfect setting when I came across it on a prolonged early morning walk. Situated outside the wonderfully preserved and beautiful bustling harbour of Fiscardo (named after the Norman pirate Roberto Guiscardo who died there in 1085), we were there in the first week of May but there was already keen competition for boat berths on the quay which is reputed to get really fierce in the summer months. So well worth a visit!!

Thanks so so much for looking, Comments always welcome.

Cheers
maggie
