aghios Gerasimos monastery

The monastery of Agios Gerasimos is in the municipality of Omala and is the holiest place on Kefalonia. It is located 11km away from Argostoli, the capital of the island. Next to the monastery are built the old and the new churches of Agios Gerasimos. The new church was built after the major earthquake of 1953. In that church are kept and displayed in a silver sarcophagus the holy remains of Agios Gerasimos. The saint passed away on August 15 1579, but his name day is celebrated on August 16. In addition to that date he is also celbrated on October 20 as his grave was found on the October of 1851 and his body was kept untouched from normal death decay. In the old church lies on the floor the entrance to the cave that the saint used as a mean of solitude. It is incredible the fact that although the entrance of the cave is not quite big, all the visitors dispite their size can fit through and visit it.
Ainos Mountain: Words cannot describe the awesomeness of this majestic mountain. Mount Aenos is an exceptional natural preserve boasting a forest of the unique black firs of Kefalonia (abies cephalonica). Aenos became widely known as the Monte Negro of Greece due to the dark color of the trees that seemed black when seen from far away. This beautiful National Park hosts a great variety of flora species and a rich fauna including reptiles and birds, such as the hawk, the woodpecker and the blackbird. The most important mammal found here, but unfortunately is under extinction, is the famous Aenos wild horse, which belong to the Pindos breed and is small and very strong. Become a part of nature's magic.
