Review from Tripadvisor:
“We loved the Kefalonia Botanical Gardens. We learnt so much about local flora-their medicinal and culinary uses. We loved the sculptures throughout gardens. We are from Melbourne which has botanical gardens that showcase flora from around the world. What we loved about the Kefalonia Botanica was that it emphasised local flora. Wonderful!”
