  • Brethikame to the monastery of Agios Gerasimos today, 16-8-2017. I have to say the following: there was admittedly exemplary classroom and were able to watch a nice function but this very nice outdoor space suffers from serious lack of sanitation. As there were not enough garbage bins the rubbish-piled where like everyone. It's a shame, both beautiful areas is degraded the image of indifference, primarily of the municipality ought to lead by example and secondarily ourselves that we destroy everything what nicer has focused: the environment. When waiting for the city to send cleaning crews: when you have left the tourists? Problem serious garbage has a total of all the Kefalonia! I would put five stars but the pollution is very serious business to the overlook. Chariklia Mytta, philologist

  • Very beautiful monastery, which is located and the relics of St. Gerasimos. If you're lucky and get time that has enough visitors will have the opportunity to embrace the Holy Relic. Imposing religious icons and particular architecture of the Church. Worth the visit. Particular attention to the working hours. The morning runs to 13:00, while the afternoon runs from 16:00 to 19:30.

  • Amazing monastery. We have visited the catacombs also. It's amazing and incredible if you imagine what miracles have be done in this place long time ago. Just make sure that you will not go between 1-3:30 because is closed.
  • Even for an atheist a pretty awsome experience. Wonderfull decorated church. Witness the daily ceremony of kissing the remains of Gerosimos: impressive.
  • Richly decorated neo byzantine church, intriguing yet somewhat claustrofobic cave. Bizar kissing of the mummified body ceremony. Highly recommended as a two hour visit.
  • A beautifull church! It's worth a visit!
  • Time stands still here , you can feel it while you walk around this place
