    Agathi's Lace Shop: Famous for its handmade lace.

    by Jerelis Written Apr 26, 2012
    Harbour area of Kassiopi with lots of shops.

    We took the path opposite of the church and went to the ruined Byzantine fortress. It's abandoned to the whims of nature and the entrance is almost hidden by wild flowers. The castle was built in the 14th century by the Angevin conquerors of Corfu. The Venetians finally overran the castle and in revenge razed it almost to the ground. But it's still worth visiting, because it lead us to a vantage point offering spectacular views over Kassiopi's bay and up to Mount Pantokrator.

    What to buy: After a nice cold frapé in the village centre we returned to the harbour area. We ended up at Agathi's Lace Shop. Greece is famous for its handmade lace and embroidered cotton and there is lots of choice at this shop! We also saw women at work as they made lace tablemats and embroidered tablecloths. When we left the village we said to each other that Kassiopi is still a working historical port and it's an interesting one too!

    IN GENERAL: NOT MUCH TO BUY

    by whitecliff62 Updated Jan 11, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: Kassiopi is not a huge resort so shopping is limited to the assentials and a few gifts, the best place for shopping is at Corfu town where you can shop till you drop. Buses go there every hour or so from Kassiopi
