The lighthouse of Saint Theodoroi lies on a man-made peninsula close to Argostoli village, the capital of the island. It is a circular structure with 20 columns and its tower is 8 m tall. The building has a rather simple and Doric architectural style, while its focal plane is 11 m. It was originally built in 1828 by the British administrator Charles Napier, who ruled the island that time.
In 1863, after the integration of the island to the Greek State, this lighthouse was included in the lighthouse network of Greece.
The earthquake of 1953 that hit severely Kefalonia and the other Ionian islands destroyed the lighthouse. It was rebuilt in 1960 by local architect Takis Pavlatos according to its original architectural design. The lighthouse of Saint Theodoroi works till today and gives a romantic view at night. It is found 3 km from Argostoli, close to Katavothres, or you will see it if you take the boat to Lixouri village.

Γειά σου Ιωάννη!
Μια πολύ όμορφη φωτογραφία, μάλλον μυστηριώδη, πολύ όμορφο περιβάλλον προς την νύχτα, μια τέλεια σκηνοθεσία, τα χρώματα είναι έξτρα και θα προκύψουν καλά. Μια μεγάλη επιτυχία, ιδιαίτερα η αρχιτεκτονική του Φάρου που ομολογώ εκπλήσει!
Αυτή είναι μια εκπληκτική τελικά σε σύνολο φωτογραφία,
Καλώς όρισες πίσω πάλι

A very nicely composed photo, with a lovely sunset over the horizon. You adopted an excellent viewpoint for this one. But I see evidence of a some dodging to make the shadowed area lighter around the base of the building, which I think is unnecessary. Still, it's a very pleasing picture and good note.
