Zákinthos Town is the capital and the main port of the island of the same name. The churches, palaces and squares with their fountains and arcades were built during the Venetian occupation. Although much of the town was destroyed in an earthquake in 1953, it has been rebuilt in the Venetian style. Soft nougat, mandoláto, is a speciality.
