Kerkyra in 8 Photos

It is not easy to condense an entire trip to just eight photos. However, we will do exactly just that since it will be quite challenging to post hundreds of what I took.

Corfu or Kerkyra (Greek: Κέρκυρα), is a town in the Ionian islands of Greece. It is inhabited by more than 100,000 people and got its name from the love of Poseidon’s life, Korkyra. I will not bore you with much history and I will go ahead and take you to the beautiful Kerkyra.

The lighthouse was built by the British to light the way to their principal naval base in the Ionian Islands. It stands at the east end of the town of Kérkyra within the Venetian citadel, which withstood repeated sieges by the Turks.

Paleokastritsa (Greek: Παλαιοκαστρίτσα meaning Old Castle place) is believed to be the mythical island of the Phaeacians, and the bay of Palaiokastritsa to be the place where Odysseus disembarked and met Nausicaa for the first time.
