At an altitude of 340m, the picturesque village of Exoghi, lies on the Homeric mountain of Neion. During the Middle Ages and at the beginning of the Venetian Period, it was one of the main habitations of the island, offering safety from the pirates, an excellent view of the channel, the sea and the bays around the northern part of Ithaca. During the period of the English rule, the population was well over 1,300 people. At the top of Exoghi, a road leads to Pernarakia, ending at the monastery (now uninhabited) of Panaghia The view from this point is breathtaking, overlooking as it does the sea around the island, Kefalonia and even as far as Lefkas, Zakinthos and the western mainland of Greece.
