CORFU tourist attractions

+27 attractions

The capital of the island of Corfu lies on its eastern edge and is its most important port. The small, picturesque city combines Greek, Italian and French influences resulting from a turbulent and long history. The Old Town with narrow streets and charming buildings is fully inscribed on the UNESCO list.

The city, like the whole island, has repeatedly changed its nationality, which is evident in its buildings and used patterns. Although it was heavily damaged during air raids during World War II, fortunately, a substantial part of it survived and after revitalization enjoys a unique atmosphere.

The most important monuments of the city are the Greek temple of Artemis and the medieval church of St. Spirydion, in which the relics of the island's patron are kept. Around him is a tangle of narrow streets with houses reminiscent of Venice. They rise to the ruins of two fortresses towering over Corfu. In turn, the main shopping street of the city, Liston, with many shops, restaurants and cafes is modeled on the Paris Rue de Rivoli with its arcades and was designed by the same architect.
