Visited on the way to another part of the island. This is a very pretty monastery which you can walk round and the gardens. We had a car but I did notice a lot of coaches so the place is obviously on the tour route....More

The church is in a quiet place in the trees. We found just one nun and a woman in the museum. The old church is very beautiful but the things you see in the museum you cannot see them anywhere else in the whole world.

This small museum contains some beautiful religious art from Kefalonia, much of it from churches destroyed in the 1953 earthquake. The icons, carved wood, and other items, dating from the C15, are well and thoughtfully presented.

The site has a few buildings that can be visited. One has some icons and wood carvings that have been saved after the 1953 earthquake and these are probably the most interesting items on display. In a small church there are a variety of relics...More
