AGIOS MATTHEOS (Small town) CORFU
Tel: +30 26610 75142
A large, but charming village, with buildings both new and old. A paved road leads to the Monastery of the Pantokrator at the top of the hill. Also at the top of the hill is the Hole of Pelaos, a cave which is said to communicate with the sea. In the fertile Gardiki district there is another Venetian castle, a twin to Aggelokastro. It too belonged to the Despotate of Epirus. It is octagonal, with towers at each corner. As happened elsewhere in Greece, the remains of ancient temples have been incorporated into the walls of the castle.
MORAITIKA (Village) CORFU
A seaside tourist resort situated at the mouth of the river Mesoggi. The area could well have been inhabited since Neolithic times if one is to judge from the small 3rd century B.C. temple which can be seen high up on the hill. At the river mouth there are ruins of a Hellenoromaic building.
