MpochaliArticles: Bohali



Bohali is a beautiful, picturesque village of Zakynthos, only a few hundred meters from the city. It’s located on the Mount Lofos, which is covered with olive and pine trees. The view towards the city of Zakynthos and the endless blue sea is simply breathtaking. That is also where the famous Greek poet, Dionysios Solomos was inspired to write its most famous poem, which would later give away its lyrics to be the Greek National Anthem. There are also many cafeterias and taverns in the village’s central square. On the top of the hill stands the Venetian castle with the lion gate, which is a true monument of the island’s history. You should also visit the island’s Marine Museum, where many items from the Greek Revolution, WWI and WWII are displayed.
