The Monastery is set in beautiful grounds with colourful gardens. To enter the Chapel, ladies must have their shoulders and legs covered. Clothing is available on a rail, to facilitate this. Why men don't have to do the same, is a mystery. It is worth...More

The monastery of Agios (Saint) Gerasimos is definitely a place worth visiting. There are two churches on the property - the new church built within the past 20 years where service is held on Sundays and the original smaller church where St. Gerasimos’ mummified remains...More

I should have done a little more research before we went to the Monastery, but even not having done it I was able to enjoy the building, the grounds, and the extensive decoration inside. We visited as a part of a 4-hour private island tour...More

Large white modern monastery but with amazing colourful paintings and chandeliers inside. Free to go in and look around. Worth a look as the drive there goes through wonderful mountain scenery

A truly beautiful Monastery, with very nice frescoes. It is definitely something which you should see while in Kefalonia.

Close to Argostoli, church of the local saint Agios Gerasimos can be found. It is considered a miracle that his body is still there preserved through the years and not decomposed. With a bit of luck, the monks will open his crypt so you can...More

We were fortunate to be visiting Kefalonia on 16 August which is one of two days that Kefalonians celebrate their patron saint Gerasimos (the other is during October). The festivities start when his body is carried in a silver and glass sarcophagus from the older,...More
