Corfu Sights

Paleokastritsa Monastery

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Fodor's Review

Paleokastritsa Monastery, a 17th-century structure, is built on the site of an earlier monastery, among terraced gardens overlooking the Ionian sea. Its treasure is a 12th-century icon of the Virgin Mary, to whom the establishment is dedicated, and there's a small museum with some other early icons. Note the Tree of Life motif on the ceiling. Be sure to visit the inner courtyard (go through the church), built on the edge of the cliff and looking down a precipitous cliff

to the placid green coves and coastline to the south. There's a small gift shop on the premises.
