  • Now closed, this monastery sits on Cape Kavos, the most westerly point on Kefalonia, and we were sad to learn of the death of the one remaining monk, whom we'd met on an earlier visit. We recalled...  more »

  • The monastery was closed, and not very charming to look at from the outside. However, the drive towards the monastery (and especially the scenery) was amazing. Lots of great places with beautiful panoramic views. So, two stars for a tourist attraction, which of course, it isn't.
  • Is very quiet and so beautiful! Definitely worth a visit
  • It's a helluva drive to get here. It's beautiful and the views are to die for but for us the monastery was closed. This is the reason for the 3 stars. As there was nothing to do
  • The road to the monastery was breathtaking! But the monastery itself was closed and not that impressive.
  • The monastery looks quite beautiful, but unfortunately not accessible. The hiking trail down to the cliffs is dreamlike and well signposted. Those who are brave enough can continue to walk to the edge of the cliffs, top views.
