    The church of Saint Dionissios, the patron - saint of the island

    The church is situated in the southern end of the sea - front street of Zakynthos town, called Srata Marina. It was built in 1708 and it was reconditioned half a century later, in 1764. The church contains noticeable paintings, created by hagiographers Koutouzis and Doxaras. The saint's memory is celebrated on 24 of August.
    The monastery of Anafonitria

    35 km. north of Zakynthos town, in the village of Anafonitria, is the famous monastery of Virgin Anafonitria. It was built in 14th century in memory of Panaghia Vrefokratousa.
    The patron saint of the island, Dionysios, was the abbot of this monastery and the man who had murdered the saint's brother sought refuge in the monastery. Saint Dionysios realized who he was, but gave him his forgiveness and led him escape to Kephalonia.
    Every devout visitor who comes here feels awe.
    Saint George at Gremna

    Saint George at Gremna, near to village of Anafonitria, was built by the monk Varlam Beletis in 1540-1550.
    The monk, Saint Gerasimos of Cephalonia lived here and the theologian and historian Pachomios Rousanos wrote his work here.
    The Castle of Zakynthos (Kastro)

    The Castle is a Venetian structure at Bohali, 2 km. from Zakynthos town, and is almost hidden among the pine trees. Over the central of its three gates, we see the sculptured crest of Venice, St Markos' Lion. This castle with its huge hewn stones, the embrasures, the towers and cannons, is used to protect the old city of Zakynthos.
    The view from here is really amazing!
