About Lassi - Lassi Maps
Lassi is the main holiday resort on the island and the closest to the capital, Argostoli. Good hotels, apartments/studios, plenty of restaurants/taverns/bars and beautiful sandy beaches make it very popular with tourists. Its central location on the island makes it
ideal starting point for exploring Kefalonia. Lassi itself, however, has many points of interest.
Underneath you will find some information for the seesights of Lassi.
St. Theodoron Lighthouse
It is a traditional lighthouse used for the approaching to the shore ships, so as to avoid rocks. Built in 1829 during the British Rule, a work of J.P. Kennedy. Like everything else in most of Kefalonia, it was destroyed during the earthquake of August 1953. It was reconstructed immediately after.
St. Gerasimos Cave
Saint Gerasimos lived an ascetic life, when he came to Kefalonia in 1555 and stayed here for 5 years. In 1560 he went to Omala, where his monastery is today. In the northern side of the Cave, there is a natural 30x30cm hole, which provides natural lighting and a view to the sea. Today, the Cave has been embodied into a small chapel.
Italian War Memorial I
The memorial lies near one of the many execution sites scattered throughout the island of Kefalonia and serves as a reminder of one of the most horrific episodes of World War II.
