After a walk through the town of Argostoli, Vallianou Square is the ideal place to enjoy a coffee, a cold beer or a meal. The area around the large square is exclusively for pedestrians so it is a pleasant and safe surrounding for children and, in the evenings, it becomes a popular gathering place. On the square you will see the statue of the Kefalonian and national benefactor, Panagis Vallianos.
During the summer months a variety of cultural events with Kefalonian kantades (traditional polyphonic songs accompanied by guitar and mandolin, which originate from Italy), dancing and music enliven the square in the evening.
The museums of the city, as well as the shopping street Lithostrotos, and many additional cafes and restaurants are within a radius of 200 m south of the square.
If you are a cinephile you have the unique opportunity to go to the only open-air cinema on the island next to the square. At Cine Anny you can see new movies in a flower-filled garden beneath a star-studded sky.
