Went up to see this memorial when in nearby argostonia. It is a fitting tribute to the Italian soldiers who perished in Kefalonia.

Away from the shops , the beaches and restaurants of Argostoli is this fine poignant memorial to the Italian Acqui division from world war two. It is a fine memorial to the troops who previously had occupied this small island , and then, in turn,...More

This is a fitting memorial to those Italians of the Acqui who were slane during the tragic times in 1943. The whole story should never be forgotten. Point to note, the map reference on here isnt correct. The memorial is over on the hill north...More

We returned to this memorial on each and every visit to Kefalonia. It specifically commemorates the Italian Acqui Division, and it's support units, that were slaughtered by German troops who occupied the island in early September 1943, following Italy's capitulation. Many thousands were massacred, after...More

Little place well worth looking for. If you know the history you will find this really haunting. RIP Italian soldiers - you didn't deserve that.

Having watched Captain Correllis mandolin and having an Italian father I wanted to do a little research into the history of the Italian occupation and subsequent slaughter in Kefalonia so I visited the memorial. Interesting and free

Remote, peaceful spot, above the town of Argostoli. Gates are locked, but there is a number to call to schedule a visit to lay flowers or a wreath.

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.

That's great! It really is a haunting place, but some how enlightened considering.... Well done for the research and finding the evidence around. Shame other people don't understand!
