Cave of Saint Gerasimos at Lassi

3.6/5 rating (11 votes)

This is the cave where Saint Gerasimos is said to have led an ascetic existence for five years after arriving from Zakynthos in 1555. The following year he moved to Omala, where his monastery now stands. On the north side of the cave is a natural opening of about 30x30 cm, which provides natural light and a view towards the sea. Today the cave has been incorporated into the chapel of a small monastic retreat belonging to the Holy Monastery of Saint Gerasimos of Omala.
