Corfu (Prefecture)

The best picture for anyone who comes for the first time in Corfu is from the ship which, as if deliberately, comes in a slow pace to give you the opportunity to take a good look of the great medieval castles of the Venetians, to inspect the tall buildings with yellow tiles and the mansions of the nobility - other painted in ochre and other in red. You can also distinguish the narrow streets with laundry hanging from windows and sink your eyes in green spaces springing everywhere and keeping in their laps a city that was declared by UNESCO world cultural heritage. The charm of the island, however, is not limited to the picturesque and romantic old city. From North to South, the landscape in Corfu wavers between harmony and contrasts. From the caves and towering cliffs of Paleokastritsa in the northwest, the age-old villages of Pantokrator and dense groves meeting the sea on the northeast coast to the serene scenery of Lake Korission and vast sandy beaches to the south, the frames rotate, filling unexpectedly your visual and emotional field. You won’t see anything usual, this is sure, and one can understand it at first glance. This was understood by both imperial and democratic Frenchmen who claimed Corfu, was understood by the Doges; it was understood by the British as well. The isle of the Phaeacians, at the crossroads of Western and Eastern civilizations, always challenged one’s senses.
