Saint Gerasimos healed the sick and the possessed. His incorrupt relics are the main relic of the monastery. Once a year, on August 16, on St. Gerasimos Memorial Day, a rite is held in the monastery: the relics of the Holy One are sung over the parishioners who want to be healed.
On the territory of the shrine you will see three wells dug by Saint Gerasim personally, and three large plane trees, planted by a monk more than half a century ago.
St. Gerasimos Day refers to the state holidays on Kefalonia. It is celebrated on October 20.
