Travel Tips for Corfu Island

Pelekas - Large number of churches!

by Jerelis

We drove towards Pelekas by car and the fun thing was that once we were near it we could see Pelekas village up on the hill in front of us. When we arrived at Pelekas we past the village square with a few small bars and round the corner. We drove on for a little while and the first thing we noticed was the large number of churches built in Pelekas. This is due to the freedom of religious granted by the Venetians, the piety of the inhabitants and also that most of the churches belonged to guilds or to rich families.

We parked the car near the Church of St. Nicholas. It’s really a beautiful church, probably made in 1551. The characteristic feauture of the church is the monumental façade, influenced by Italian churches of the 16th century. We also liked the typical tower-like belfry and the ceiling that was decorated with great paintings and frescoes of Heptanesian art.

As we walked some more through the village we tasted it authentic Greek character and the locals had a great hospitality. The beach lies below the village - about 10 minute walk - and is a wide crescent of sand with sunbeds, showers, toilets and beachfront tavernas. Have a look at Corfu Packing List.

paleokastritsa

by Conflictrealms

You must go to paleokastritsa on the north west side of the island. It is one of the most beautiful places i have been. There are many very steep hills full of greenery. There are many coves with turquoise coloured water which is bloody beautiful. I suggest trying to fight your way to the top of a hill, just to look down on the coves. You wont regret it, and make sure you have your camera!

Paleopolis and Mon Repo

by mindcrime

After a great lunch at Kanoni area we decided to visit the Paleopolis area, where the archeologists try to bring back to life some of the ancient buildings that used to be there (pic 1). Paleopolis covers the area around Mon Repo park.

There is an early Christian church(pics 2-3) here that was built in the middle of 5th century (!) by the bishop of Corfu Iovianos, at the spot where a roman public building was standing before, in the area of Kanoni. It is also known as the church of Agia Kerkyra (daughter of Kerkyllinou) that became a Christian and died because of that.

It was the area where the roman forum was at that era and as usual they used many material from other building like ancient buildings etc It was bombed or destroyed by other methods many times from Normans, vandals, Goths and the final hit was by Nazis during WWII. Today you can only see the relics of the church but during the 15th century it was part of a monastery dedicated to Pagania Anafonitria.

As we couldn’t see something else there we crossed the street to the other side and we walked inside the famous Mon Repo, that used to be the summer resort for the greek royal family. You can walk along the garden/park(pic 4) for free where you can see the palace (the entrance fee is 5euros). The small theatre (named after the local famous actor Rena Vlachopoulou) has theatrical plays in the summer. At the Analipsis hill you can see the relics of an ancient temple probably from 6th century BC.
