The small village of Saint Dimitrios, of approximately 100 villagers, is only 2Km away from Lixouri, the city center of Paliki. Its name was given by the villagers after the big earthquake in 1953. Its first name was Kouvalata and its first location was at the mountains. Entering the village, you meet the small church of Saint Dimitrios. On the right of the church, there is the “Andreas Laskaratos’ Hill”, a person who is deemed as one of the most significant scholars in Greece. Outside the village (400m), there is the monastery of Saint Mary of Kehrionos, which has an historical importance. It is said that the monastery was built at the beginning of the 17th century, and it was the first church of the village Vlachovouni (the village does not exist anymore). Following the earthquake in 1953, the Monastery was seriously damaged externally, but the inside, having the Throne and the miraculous picture of Saint Mary was untouched. Every year, on 23rd of August, most of the villagers of Kefalonia are gathered there to celebrate the Assumption.
