Zakynthos Town located on the east side of the island is the capital of Zakynthos. A city literally rebuilt out of its own ashes, since a wildfire destroyed everything that has been left by the catastrophic earthquake in 1953.
Zakynthos offers many interesting things to the visitor such as the famous Zantechurch of San Dionisio, that keeps the relics of the saint, the numerous museums and the characteristic squares of D. Solomos and Saint Mark; this one dated back to the Venetian period and with the only one catholic church of the island.
Besides the seafront (marine road) and the small internal streets of the city there is a very interesting borough around the ruins of the ancient Venetian castle located at the top of the hill of Strani at the back of the city. Here the tiny and silent alleys, the old houses with the courtyard with flowers and the enchanting landscape dominating the bay of the city of Zakynthos will make your holiday unique and unforgettable.
