Keri is situated on the Southwest side of the island and is
15 klm from the city of Zakynthos
and 12 klm from the Airport. Referred to by Herodotus it is an area
that combines the sea, pine forests, valleys and streams.
Keri was many times in the past, the target of pirates and conquerors.
The people of the village over the years have been humble farmers,
fishermen, woodcutters and shepherds who struggled with the land,
with poverty and the difficulties which existed in all the seasons.
At the same time they developed many cultural values; their love
of song, dance and music is renowned and popular theater or 'Speeches"
another name for street theater, were enjoyed by the entire village.
There also developed groups of wonderfully harmonious street singers.
Tradition and culture blossomed alongside the natural beauty and
with this came tourism which today makes Keri one of the highest
quality tourist destinations on the island as it combines all the
desirable elements of nature, tradition and culture.
