KASSIOPI Village KERKYRA

Overview

A town built on the site of an ancient settlement. Kassiopi flourished during the Roman period, chiefly on account of its geographic position overlooking the sea pass. In ancient times there was a sanctuary to Zeus here, on the site now occupied by the 16th century Panagia Kassiopitissa. The ruins of the town's castle, dating from the 14th century, can be seen on the hill. A number of narrow streets lead from the harbour to the town's beaches. Kassiopi is an ideal point of departure for visitors wishing to explore all the northern part of Corfu.
