Monastery of Kathara

The monastery of Kathara is built high up on the peak of mount Niritos and has a breathtaking view of Vathy, the whole southern Ithaki and Kefallonia. Its history dates back to the late 17th century and remains alive in our days.

Virgin Mary Kathariotissa is the protector of the island and a great festival takes place on the 8th of September in her honor.
