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

    Monastery reached for determination. The road leading there, is gorgeous, with beautiful scenery. The gate of the monastery looks closed, but it is not. You enter and it turns out that it was abandoned, probably by an earthquake two years ago. At your own risk, you visit, stepping over low gates and it turns out the crazy part panorama overlooking the sea, from the top of the cliff. Don't get too close to the edge: who is percioloso you can tell by looking at the cracks on the verge of collapse. We walked into one of the rooms and you have the impression that has been abandoned too hastily. That desolation. A beautiful place that I hope will be recovered.

    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.

    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)
