Fiscardo is situated in the most northern point of the island opposite
the island of Ithaka and is
famous for its traditional architecture and its cosmopolitan port.
It is one of the most important tourist and holiday destinations of
the island with soundly organised tourist background.
Many yachts arrive at Fiscardo's port where their owners most of the
times decide to stay for the rest of their holiday.
Something similar happened to crusader Robert Guiscard from whom Fiscardo
took its name, who arrived in 1085 in order to conquer the island, but finally
stayed and lived in Fiscardo for the rest of his life. Most of the mansions (stately
houses) one can see in Fiscardo belong to the Venetian architecture era.
