About De Bosset Bridge

The De Bosset Bridge lies in the bay of Argostoli, it’s also sometimes known as Drapano Bridge. It was built in 1813 by Swiss engineer Charles Philippe De Bosset, It’s about 690m long making it the longest stone bridge over the sea in the world.

The bridge links the Fanari peninsula, where Argostoli is, to the main body of Kefalonia island. It can make for a nice walk in the early evening time and since cars are no longer allowed it’s a safe place for a walk too. just remember that however far you walk across you’ll have to do the same distance back.  so nearly 1.5km by the time you’ve walked over the whole thing and come back again.

There’s an obelisk part way along the De Bosset bridge that was the Kefalonian Parliament’s symbol of gratitude to Great Britain.

One of the most popular things to do on the De Bosset Bridge is to look for turtles as they have often been spotted swimming in the water around the bridge.
