Monastery of Saint Gerasimos at Valsamata


In the middle of Cephalonia, at Omala plateau, lies the settlement of Valsamata. Having Ainos mountain dominating the landscape the village of Valsamata is located very close to the monastery of Saint Gerasimos, which was founded by the very same patron of the island. It’s worth mentioning that at the 16th of August and 20th of October the saint’s relic is carried outside the monastery to reach the plane tree planted by Saint Gerasimos.

Robola wine is the characteristic island’s product, which is mainly produced around the area of the monastery, and it became a symbol of religious and cultural heritage. Each August a feast is organized offering free entrance and robola wine for everyone, while traditional live music surrounds the celebration.
