Afterwards you can visit the church Panagia Keriotissa and its bell tower. This shines in the old splendor and especially the windows are a real highlight. From the tower above you can enjoy a magnificent view over the surroundings.

Food in Zakynthos

Zakynthos is not only a highlight for the eyes, but also for the palate. Sarca is probably the culinary landmark of the island. This is a dish consisting of beef with tomatoes, feta cheese and garlic. Further popular is the dish Skordostubi, which is prepared from tomatoes, eggplants and olive oil with garlic.
