Patron of Kefalonia island, Saint Gerasimos spent his last years in a cave located near the monastery named after him.
How to see the Cave of Agios Gerasimos in Kefalinia
Next to the Monastery of St. Gerasimos, there is a small cell with an underground cave where the Holy One spent his last five years of life praying to the God.

Going down a narrow staircase, you will enter the upper cave, 3 meters deep, and then, through the hole in the floor you will fall into the distant cave. Here is silent inside and smells of incense, smoothly polished stones as an evidence of frequent praying of a recluse monk.

How to do?

1. The monastery is in the village of Lassi, in 3 km. away from Argostoli.
2. Go into the cell next to the monastery, through a small hole in the floor you will fall into the far cave where Saint Gerasimos prayed.
3. Having risen upward, on the way back, buy a candle as a donation to the temple.
