Assos is a small and picturesque fishing village 36 kilometers away from Argostoli. It is known for its imposing 16th century Venetian fortress. The fortress was built in 1585, when Assos became the capital of the northern part of the island, and it is a typical masterpiece of the Renaissance architecture.
