Locals are proud of Enos, which in 1962 was declared a National Forest, due to its natural and geological interest.
It is the highest mountain of Kefalonia, as well as of all the Ionian islands and is located at the east side of the island. The deep, dark color of the Kefalinian fir that covers Enos hills led the Venetians to name the mountain Monte Negro, the Black Mountain. Mountain and hiking lovers will fall in love with Enos from the start. If they are lucky, maybe they will see in one of their wanderings in the mountain’s paths, the famous wild horses of Kefalonia and they must visit the greatest monasteries of Kefalonia, such as the Monastery of St. Gerasimos in Omala.
