Partly destroyed by the strong earthquake of 1953, the Byzantine convent of Agios Andreas has since been restored and turned into a fine museum housing a unique collection of wonderful Byzantine icons and ecclesiastical items. The plaster that fell off the walls of the church during the earthquake revealed some fantastic frescoes dating back from the 16th century.
The Castle of Saint George stands on a hill above Peratata village, about 7 km from Argostoli. It was originally built by the Byzantines but the Venetians gave it its final form in 1504. The Castle is almost ruined today by invasions and the severe earthquake that hit Kefalonia in 1953.
