  • I had read in the guidebooks about the monastery of Kipoueron, which means the monastery gardens and i went. The lack of any marking and information, that the monastery closed.. With great difficulty I found it in a total renovation. ACC. me, the repair for about 2 years.

  • Is delicious and shame for the inhabitants a monastery with incredible history to it is located egkataleleimeno. O teleytaios koimithike monachos in 2014 and since then the monastery remained the desert.

  • Since the 2014 earthquake. Date of re-opening unknown. Lovely panorama, though. Road to and from Lixouri not for the faint-hearted.  more »

  • My favourite spot: the breathtaking view over the cliffs into the Ionian blue, unforgettable sunset, the magical serenity of the monastery and the tres simpatique & humble father Eusevios make me visit this extraordinary location every time I visit my favourite island
  • Amazing monastery with breath taking views. Honestly, the best sunset on Kefalonia is seen here! The pictures don't do this site any justice. The monistary is situated off a cliff with the ocean below. Went here as a child every summer with my family. We would stay a week or so and the monks were most welcoming. I really don't recommend it for lodging, unless you can truly appreciate the religion and culture, but a definite stop when in kefalonia for sure.
  • Loved it going back 2016 to shoot the Sunset its a must do from this fabulous place .
  • Catarina a beautyful part the is paratisei and trying to episkeyasoyn .... abandonment in all greatness is worth the serenity and perfect sunset come to Donna young monk and prostatepsei

  • If you visit Kefalonia one of the places you must see is the Monastery of Agios Andreas Milapidias. The beauty of Monastir and natural gardens will enchant you. (Don't miss the unique sunset)
