Napier's Garden

Above Vallianou Square is the famous garden of Napier. It stands apart from the other gardens because it is elevated and has a large variety of trees. History of the 19th century in Argostoli depicts that it was a vineyard. The British governor of Kefalonia at this time, Colonel Sir Charles James Napier purchased it in 1828.In November of 1905 it stood as a Municipal grove with a kiosk in the centre and it was used as a recreational area and for entertainment. In the following years a bust of Napier was constructed by the sculptor John Red and on the base was an inscription. After the earthquake the garden was finally abandoned until the 2003-2004 period where the regeneration funding from the Third Community Support Framework was used to return the garden to its original form, it was planted with many flowers and a kiosk was in the spot of the original one that existed. T the beginning of the 2004 Olympics the Olympic Flame ceremony took place in the garden of Napier.
