Saint Gerasimos is the protector of the island.

In the monastery are kept intact and fragrant the relics of the saint. In honor of the Saint are two major festivals a year, on August 16 (day of death) and October 20 ( restitution of his relics) and come pilgrims from all over Greece. The relics of the saint carried in procession, about 500 yards from the church. Although it has built a new monastery, there is the old church, where is the hermitage of Saint with various items he used.

Next to the monastery is the winery Rompola. Here visitors can sample free wine after a brief tour of the stages of production and vinification and then have the opportunity to purchase wines (at factory prices).
