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.
Kefalonia is a beautiful island that attracts thousands of tourists from all over the world each year. This memorial commemorates a sad period of history on this island 75yrs ago that very few people outside of Italy or the island know about. 5,000 Italian soldiers...More
The memorial is certainly worth visiting for anyone with an interest in the island's military history.

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
