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

I feel really glad to visit St.Andrew Monastery. If you happen to visit the St.George Castle in Peratata, the monastery is very close (on the opposite site of the road). The monastery is dated many centuries ago. We were really blessed to be in that...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

This Greek orthodox monastery, actually a nunnery to be precise, was one of the stops on our Holland America excursion from the port of Argostoli. The site dates back to the Byzantine era, but the earthquake of 1953 that devastated the island of Cephalonia also...More

Check opening times so you are not disappointed. To see both the museum and the church you will need to visit before 2pm when they close. Interesting museum with religious paintings and artefacts. The guide wil unlock the ancient church when he gets a group...More
