“The Museum of Asian Art is inside the beautiful Palace of Saint Michael and Saint George. This museum was created in 1927 when the Corfiot diplomat Gregorio Manos donated over 10.000 pieces of Japanese and Chinese handicraft to the prefecture.”
“Mostly frequented by youngsters yet not exclusively. The club plays upbeat music, ranging from mainstream Greek and international music, hip hop, house and electro beats.”
“One of the most impressive fortification works in Europe. It is the first thing to see as the ferry approaches Corfu. It stands on the eastern side of the town, on a rocky peninsula that gets into the sea. This fortress was built to protect the town from enemies and pirates. On the eastern side of the fortress, there is a flatland, used today for cultural events in summer. In this flat square, there is the church of Saint George, built by the Venetians as an ancient temple. This is actually the only church in Greece that has been constructed according to the Doric style. The highest point of the fortress needs about 20 minutes walking up to a tall clock tower.”
“This church is named after Corfu's patron saint, St. Spyridon. Built in 1589, its red-domed bell-tower dominates the skyline from afar. Inside, in a low-lit side chapel decorated with moody frescoes, note a silver sarcophagus adorned with precious stones, enclosing the remains of St. Spyridon. A shepherd from Cyprus, Spyridon lived in the second century AD, and before he died, he became a bishop and began performing miracles. Since his remains are in Corfu, locals believe that his miraculous intervention saved their island from catastrophe on several occasions. ”
“Very beautiful spot you can sit at the Royal Cafe and have a drink as you gaze over at the Mouse Island, Vlaherena Church and airport runway. A great place for plane spotting as you get to see planes landing and taking off up close and personal.”
