St Gerasimos Day 16th August

If you are in Kefalonia this week then it is worth considering a visit to the monastery of St Gerasimos on the 16th. After a church service the body of St Gerasimos is paraded in his casket down through the village at about lunchtime. You would need to get there earlier to park. There is also a market on the adjacent fields.

It's worth a visit once.

Wish I was still out there to see that! Sadly I flew back to the UK on Tuesday and am not due to return to Kefalonia until 1st September, Next year I will make sure I am out there for the festival as I hear it's well worth attending.

I'm just going to miss it as we arrive on Sunday 18th! Was disappointed when I realised this that I hadnt booked the week earlier - darn!

The monastery is always top of my list for places to visit, just love the atmosphere and beautiful paintings

It's a wonderful spectacle Bob, we've been lucky enough to witness the events a couple of times.
