Rock of Byron

Rock of Byron

If I am a poet, I owe it to the air of Greece,' reads the plaque at Lorn Byron’s rock. The great writer travelled to Kefalonia in 1823 and this monument stands near the site of his former home in Metaxa. The stunning views from this vantage point are thought to have inspired much of the poet’s work.
