Although I’ve visited the island many times this was my first trip to the Cyclopean Walls- its a bit like a well kept secret, not many people know about the walk and the giant stones above the area known as Krania. We were particularly fortunate...More

On the road out of Argostoli to Sami, there is a sharp right turn at traffic lights that takes you to Razata where , if you're lucky, you will spot a small, insignificant sign to the Cyclopean city of Krani on the right hand side...More

I visit this beautiful island every year and this was the first time visiting the Cyclopean Wall of Krani and it is well worth a visit, especially if you're into history! It's a bit out of the way and not widely promoted but it definitely...More

Cyclopean Wall is good for people who love history. Though the way to this place is not very easily marked, you have to look carefully for a small sign to the place. Quite inside on a rough road. No tickets needed it is free. Geerks...More

It is one of the most unbelievable experiences that Kefalonia can offer you. Immense walls of the Krani State, one of the four states of Ulysses kingdom, built almost 3000 years back and still maintaining its character and building details today.

It is just a Greek myth, but the Greeks built these huge walls with huge stones. The trail follows the wall, it is clearly marked but quite rocky. Don't forget your hiking shoes if you plan to do all of it. But an east walk...More

There are two or three sections of this wall worth visiting. The first is most impressive. To get to it you need to take the road towards Sami from Argostoli. About three kilometres from the Drapano bridge is Razata. There is a signposted road on...More

A very good example of ancient fortifications, with quite easy access (from Razata, through an unpaved but in good condition road of 1,5 km). The building quality of some parts and the extent of the fortifications are amazing. On site there is some useful information...More

This is an interesting place to explore. Wear good shoes and bring lots of water - and your camera. Fantastic views along this trail, lots of interesting archaeology. Bring a swimsuit and dive off the rocks on the lower portion of the trail or swim...More
