Agalas is a village in the western mountains of Zakynthos
island. It’s 17.5km away from the islands capital Zakynthos town
and that would usually take about 25 minutes to drive.
In Agalas village, explore the works of local artists at the town gallery and museum, or simply enjoy a relaxing stroll around the quaint church before watching a stunning Ionian sunset.
You wont find a wealth of hotels or tavernas in Agalas but there are a couple of places to stay and somewhere to get some food. This definitely isn’t a tourist hot spot, it’s a charming and traditional Greek village that’s well worth exploring.
Agalas isn't the type of place you go if you're looking for nightlife. There's absolutely nothing in the way of evening entertainment so it's best suited to those looking to get away from the crowds to see the real Zakynthos.
This rural hamlet tucked amid mountains and pine forests makes an ideal base for exploring some of Zakynthos Island’s natural beauty and history.
The two-story Damianos cave
filled with awe-inspiring stalactites and stalagmites is nearby, as are the Andrianos Wells, a group of traditional 15th-century wells. A circular hike visiting these two points of interest will also take you by an ancient olive grove and, of course, some spectacular seaside views.
