The novel Captain Corelli's Manderlin explains the reason for the monument. The signage is not good but keep faith and you'll find it. Gates were locked when we visited this month and judging from other reviews this seems to be standard.

The memorial is certainly worth visiting for anyone with an interest in the island's military history. I was keen to see it after watching Captain Corelli's Mandolin (not exactly factual) but also after reading an interesting book which gave the true story of the Italian/German...More

Having read about the sad events around the massacre in 1943 we wanted to visit and pay our respects. Though we only spent a few minutes it was positive to reflect with compassion on the terrible events and what drives humanity to these atrocities.

We stopped at this memorial and read the story attached to it which was very interesting, the memorial is not to far of the road which loops around from Argostoli to Lassi and quite near the little light house that everyone seems to visit

I decided to pay this memorial whilst walking from Argostoli to Lassi along the Fanari road. It's a steep climb, is if on foot be prepared. The gates to the monument were padlocked, so it had to be viewed from the road. Nice, clear information...More
