Kabana square

Kabana Square (or Bell Tower Square) with its clock tower was built under Venetian rule (1500–1797).
During this period, the square was known as "Place Saint-Marc" but was renamed Place du Clocher (Kabana) because of the tower erected around 1790 which towered over all other buildings of the time.

The bell rang every half hour and played an important role in the community not only to indicate the weather, but also for alarms and holidays.

In 1797, the French who arrived in Kefalonia planted the tree of freedom there, marking the end of the Venetian occupation and the birth of the liberation movement.
The bell tower was destroyed by the 1953 earthquake, but the bell remained intact in the ruins.
In 1985, the bell rung again for the first time since 1953 after the tower was rebuilt with donations organized by women from Kefalonia. For several years the tower was a café managed by an association employing young disabled people to enable them to integrate into society. for several years it has been closed to the public.

In the square there is a fountain and a statue. The fountain was used in the past to provide water to residents and the bronze statue by artist Memas Kalogiratos erected in 2010 commemorates the 1973 polytechnic uprising.
The square in front of the tower is a great place to relax and have a drink and people watch on the pedestrian street.
