The church is in a quiet place in the trees. We found just one nun and a woman in the museum. The old church is very beautiful but the things you see in the museum you cannot see them anywhere else in the whole world.

This small museum contains some beautiful religious art from Kefalonia, much of it from churches destroyed in the 1953 earthquake. The icons, carved wood, and other items, dating from the C15, are well and thoughtfully presented.

This Greek orthodox monastery, actually a nunnery to be precise, was one of the stops on our Holland America excursion from the port of Argostoli. The site dates back to the Byzantine era, but the earthquake of 1953 that devastated the island of Cephalonia also...More

Check opening times so you are not disappointed. To see both the museum and the church you will need to visit before 2pm when they close. Interesting museum with religious paintings and artefacts. The guide wil unlock the ancient church when he gets a group...More
