Atheras is a small but beautiful village with roughly 200 residents. In this village the visitor can admire the church of Saint Paraskevi, where it is celebrated on 26 July, the Abbey of Saint Spyridon that is dated by the passed century and the old olive press with the observatory that is dated by the season of Venetian domination.
Atheras is tucked high in the western corner of paliki peninsula of kefalonia (
Cephalonia). This remote village is surrounded by agricultural land, on which the economy of the village is based. Atheras is a modern village, rebuilt for the most part after the earthquake. Its concrete buildings are offset by some colourful gardens. One innovative gardener has even made a planter out of an old world war 2 sea mine.


2 miles along the village atheras there is a small beautiful sandy beach (PORTO ATHERAS).The beach is fine sand with a few stones and rocks and shelves gently into the of clear water. Thought by some to be Forcys where Odysseus was left by the Faeacians after his voyage back from his adventures.







At the left of the beach there is a small blue church by the name St.Spyridon. The small blue church of St. Spiridon overlooks the small harbour and this huge bay is protected by the small island of Averonissi situated in the middle and home to numerous gulls and other birds.
