  • 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
