About Macherado

Macherado, also known as Machairado is an inland village on the island of Zakynthos in Greece. It’s around 10km south west of the islands capital Zakynthos town which would take around 15 minutes to drive.

Macherado is an unspoiled hamlet filled with authentic Greek tradition and natural beauty, amid the lush vegetation of this central town lies the Agia Mavra Church. Destroyed by a fire in 2006, this anchor of local culture was recently restored to its original Venetian glory. Sightseers will also be pleased to find themselves close to the Monastery of Eleftherotria.

Macherado isn’t too far from Kiliomenos which is another small traditional village that’s worth exploring and if you want to go to the beach then it’s easy to head down to the bay of Laganas and visit one of Laganas beach, Agios Sostis beach, Porto Koukla beach or even Kalamaki beach.
