LOCATION & MAP

 

Lassi Resort Kefalonia

Lassi is the main holiday resort on the island and nearest to the capital, Argostoli.
Its good hotels, apartments/studios, plentiful restaurants/tavernas/bars and beautiful sandy beaches make it very popular with the tourists. Its central location on the island makes it an ideal starting place for exploring Kefalonia.
Lassi itself, however, has many places of interest. The small chapel and cave of Agios Gerasimos, the patron Saint of the island, who lived here as a hermit for six years, is situated uphill off the main street.

The scenic Fanari coastal road to Argostoli starts in Lassi and provides beautiful views, small secluded bays, and welcoming refreshments at Oskars café-bar where you can take photographs of the tortoises. From here you can take a short cut over the hill into Argostoli, passing the two little churches of Agios Gerasimos and Agios Thanasis on the way. At the top you will have a panoramic view of the bay, Argostoli, Lixouri, Vardiani Island(Rabbit Island) and the whole of Lassi. The ridge footpath to the left brings you to the Italian Monument.
Along the coastal road you will see the lovely St. Theodoros lighthouse and the Katavothres water wheel with its strange phenomenon. You will pass the area which is dedicated to the memory of the Italian soldiers and officers who served on the island in World War 2. A plaque marks the grave of 136 men of the Acqui Division who were executed here by the Germans in September 1943. the Italian Memorial Monument is signposted up hill from here.
This walk from Lassi to Argostoli will give you lots to see and lots to think about, and in the evening offers the best sunsets on the island.
No wonder many tourists return to Lassi year after year.

Lighthouse of Saint Theodoroi

One of the most famous sights in the area of Argostoli, and more specifically of the so-called round of Lassis, is the Lighthouse of Saint Theodoroi. It was named after the little church which is located very close to it. The whole area has been named after the lighthouse which, for reasons of simplicity and briefness, is called Fanari. 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, like many of the traditional landmarks which characterize the island (see also Dervosetos Bridge), it is a work of J.P. Kennedy. It stands out as a circular Doric building, similar to which there is none in the whole island. Like everything else in Argostoli, as in the whole of Kefalonia, it was destroyed during the earthquake of August 1953. It was reconstructed immediately after, unfortunately with only few other masterpieces of the pre-earthquake era. Works of renovation have recently taken place, in order to save the lighthouse from the extended corrosion caused by sea water.

Katavothres

One of the most well-known sights which is also a top geological phenomenon of our island, is Katavothres. They are located in a distance of about 2km from the island’s capital, Argostoli, in the so-called round of Lassi. Sea water enters through holes near the shore and then disappears. In reality, the water entering in that exact spot follows quite a long route. Finally, it flows into the lake of Melissani as well as Karavomylos. This was unveiled in 1963, when Austrian geologists put artificial colorings in one of these entrances and afterwards, using radioisotopes, verified the route of the “disappearing” water. Rain water is also added to the quantity of sea water, which at some point meets the water which crosses the island underground. The mills were place there by the British man Stewens, who was the first to observe the phenomenon. The big earthquakes of 1867 and 1953 didn’t have any impact on this, excluding the fact that they destroyed the construction on its surface, which was nonetheless reconstructed.

Italian war memorial II

The Italian War Memorial is located on a ridge above the town of Argostoli, near the start of the tree-lined coastal road to Lassi Fanari road. It was built to honour the thousands of Italian soldiers killed or executed by the Germans after refused to surrender their weapons following the Italian armistice with the Allies.

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.

Saint Gerasimo's Cave

The Cave is located in the area of Argostoli called Lassi. Saint Gerasimos led an ascetic life when he came from Zakynthos 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 hole of approximately 30x30cm, which provides natural lighting and a view to the sea. Today, the Cave has been embodied into a small chapel, which constitutes one of the buildings of a small male hermitage, branch of the Holy Monastery of St.Gerasimo’s Omalon.
