Churches & Monasteries

The great religious tradition is apparent all over the island. Orthodox and catholic touch is obvious through the pre-earthquake - or not - churches and monasteries. While you stay in Spedion Villa, you may visit the following ones:

In Pessada village, the church of Aghios Pavlos and the monastery of Estavromenos, in Travliata village and the castle of Aghios Georgios, you will find the church of Evangelistria along with the ecclesiastical museum of the church of Aghios Andreas Milapidias, the male monastery of Sision as well as the monastery of Aghios Gerasimos, patron saint of the island, founded in the 16th century and set in the Fragata region (Omala).
Additionally, in the main pedestrian area of Argostoli, you will see the catholic church of Aghios Nikolaos. Finally, it worth visiting the monasteries of Alisodemenon and Kipouraion in Lixouri. The last one counts more than 250 of presence while over there, you will have the chance to “witness” the magnificent sunset of Cephalonia.

 

Sightseeing

Without doubt, Cephalonia boasts about some of the most beautiful island villages in the country. While leading to the picturesque harbor of Fiskardo, have stop in Assos so as to admire the Venetian castle and taste typical delights of the island in the great fish taverns. Visit Sami and Aghia Efthimia where the Hollywood movie "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" was shot or have a walk to the small Karavomylos, Poros and Skala. In any case, get to know both Argostoli and Lixouri and have an opinion of your own concerning their never ending rivalry.

 

The Caves

In Cephalonia, caves form a special section. Live the experience of a boat ride into the depths of Drogarati and Melissani caves and be sure that the greatest wonders are made by nature itself.
