This is the most important monastery of Kefalonia in the 16th century by the same patron saint of the island. In the monastery, you can see the relic, the wells is said that he opened with his hands, but the Tree of the Saint.

Near the villages Mitakata, are situated the villages Troiannata, Perratata, Mazarakata and the Castle of St. George, which was the medieval capital of Kefalonia. Even today, you can see the walls and gates built by the Venetians, and the Church of the Annunciation.

Outside of the village, on the main road, you will see the bus stop of Mitakata, stone and impressive, but … incomplete, since it has not roof!
