The views from here over the sea especially the sunsets are breathtaking! The Kipoureon monastery (Monastery of Kipourei or Kipouria) lies in the west of the island of Kefalonia, 12 kilometres from Lixouri town and 46 kilometres from Argostoli, the capital of the island. This monastery was founded in the mid-18th century by a Greek Orthodox dean of the island of Paxos. The monastery got its name from the many gardens that are here ( Kipos Garden). What makes this monastery fascinating is the fact that it is built on a rock, nearly one hundred meters above sea level. Η μονή γιορτάζει στις 25 Μαρτίου και 14 Σεπτεμβρίου. Το Μοναστήρι είναι κτισμένο σε ορθόστητο βράχο 90μ από τη θάλασσα Το έκτισε ο Αρχιμανδρίτης Χρύσανθος Πετρόπουλος το 1759.

Kounopetra is one of the oddest geological phenomena of Cephalonia. It is a big rock located a few centimetres from the shore which used to be in rocking motion. After the earthquake of 1953 the motionstopped. In the recent years, if someone steps on one of the side rocks, he may still feel the vibrations. I have not seen it moving! The sunset is wonderfull.
