Places to Visit

Sissia Monastery

– The monastery of Virgin Mary of Sissia is situated at Lourdas Bay. It’s said that St Francis of Assisi, an opinion based on the name of the monastery, founded it. In 1953 the earthquakes, which shook the island completely, destroyed the monastery, so a new building was built nearby a little uphill.

Lourdas Beach

– Lourdas Bay is one of the largest bays on Kefalonia and is fringed by over two miles of sand and pebble beach, the calm waters are ideal for families with young children
