Discover Santorini

Paleokastritsa is one of the most visited places on Corfu island. The crystal clear waters in combination with the green nature make Paleokastritsa, if not the best, of the best places to stay in Corfu.

The Monastery.

This Byzantine Monastery dates back to 1228. The monastery has a small ecclesiastical museum with rare Byzantine icons, holy books, and other relics. Inside the monastery, there works a traditional olive oil press. You can easily reach there by a 10 minutes walk.


Angelokastro is one of the most important fortified complexes of Corfu. It was an acropolis which surveyed the region all the way to the southern Adriatic and presented a formidable strategic vantage point to the occupant of the castle.

Angelokastro formed a defensive triangle with the castles of Gardiki and Kassiopi, which covered Corfu’s defences to the south, northwest and northeast.

The castle never fell, despite frequent sieges and attempts at conquering it through the centuries, and played a decisive role in defending the island against pirate incursions and during three sieges of Corfu by the Ottomans, significantly contributing to their defeat.

You need transport to get there. But worth visiting.
