St. Gerasimos, the patron saint of Kefallonia, was a highly educated man from a wealthy family who came to Kefallonia in 1555 after spending time in Jerusalem. He founded this monastery to honor the Virgin Mary and called it New Jerusalem. His body, a relic, lies within. Admire the monastery’s stunning architecture and the many trees the saint planted.
