What's Exo Hora Like
History and tradition can be hard to come by on a tourist focused island and Zakynthos is no different, particularly as it was rocked by a devastating earthquake in 1953 which destroyed large parts of the island. A few gems survived though, and Exo Hora is one of the lucky villages among those ranks.
Visiting Exo Hora is like taking a step back in time, it’s untouched by tourism. There’s no large hotels and only a couple of tavernas. It’s a traditional village that’s perfect for an afternoon away from the crowds.
The central square is home to one of the oldest Olive trees in all of Greece which dates back over 2000 years. There’s also some old stone wells just off the square. The 17th century church Agios Nikolaos is teeming with age old religious icons and worth having a look around.
There’s no nightlife in Exo Hora and it’s probably not somewhere you’d want to base your entire holiday as it’s a little out of the way for most peoples tastes.
