Unveiling the Beauty of Palaiokastritsa on Your Corfu Day Trip

Our odyssey commences at the storied shores of Palaiokastritsa, a place where the waters are as clear as crystal and the coastline is punctuated by six idyllic coves. Wrapped in layers of myth and legend, this enchanting locale is whispered to be the very spot where the great hero Odysseus was cast ashore and first encountered the noble Nausicaa. Dominating the landscape, a 12th-century monastery stands sentinel atop a commanding hill. As you ascend, panoramic vistas of the vast Ionian Sea unfold before you, revealing a horizon that stretches into infinity.


Inside, the monastery safeguards a treasure trove of sacred relics and rare religious icons, offering a profound glimpse into the spiritual and historical essence of this ancient haven.
