Monastery of Themata

The Monastery of Themata is located on the slopes of Agia Dinati Mount, the Monastery is one of the oldest monuments of Kefalonia, dating back to 1096.

There are many assumptions in how the monastery got its name. Some people think that there was an old settlement named Themata in the region that gave its name to the monastery, others believe that this monastery was the seat of a bishop in the Byzantine times when Kefalonia was a thema (Byzantine administrative unit).

The monastery is surrounded by a large pine forest, it is one of the best trekking paths along Agia Dinati mount , offering an amazing view to the east shores of Kefalonia and Ithaca.

The feast of the monastery takes place twice a year, on August 15 and the first Tuesday after Easter date on which a procession takes place with the sacred icon of the virgin followed by a big party with dances that takes place in the pine forest.
