Roman Villa of Skala

A rural Roman villa from the 2nd century AD was discovered by archaeologists in 1957 and now it is the most important monument of that time in Kefalonia. It is located in the village of Skala near the sea. Today we can see six rooms of the villa, between them and the outdoor courtyard. Four of the other sites have mosaic floors, colorful, decorated with geometric motifs of special artistry. A fire seems that destroyed the villa in the 4th century AD and a few centuries a Christian church was built on a part of the villa and operated till 9th or 10th century.
