PALEOKASTRITSA Village KERKYRA

Overview

The whole Paleokastritsa area has been developed for tourism. There are hotels, rent rooms and summer apartments. The countryside is magnificent. Apart from the main beach there are narrow paths leading to other smaller coves, suitable for bathing. The monastery of the Virgin was founded in 1225, though the building the visitor sees today dates only from the 18th-19th centuries. There is a museum with Byzantine and post-Byzantine icons. Legend has it that the small island of Kolovri at the entrance to the bay is a pirate ship which was turned to stone by the Virgin Mary, in this way protecting the monastery and the local population. Aggelokastro is the westernmost outpost of the Despotate of Epirus, to which Corfu belonged until 1267.
