Corfu Town

Corfu town was founded in the 8th century BC and it took its current form 9 centuries ago. A very well preserved medieval town, built between two castles, reflecting European history of over a thousand years. This is the main reason for which the entire historic center of the town was included in the monuments of world cultural heritage of UNESCO in June 2007.

Corfu is a place which welcomed every kind of refugees . The Jews of Spain, the Orthodox of Southern Italy and of Greece, then ruled by the Ottomans, the refugees of Cyprus , Crete , the Peloponnese , Parga , the persecuted Serbs and the immigrants of Malta and the Dalmatian coasts. Together, locals and newcomers created together a symbol of the Mediterranean, an impregnable fortresswhich is the landmark of the West.
A cosmopolitan city , the cradle of Music and Culture.

This is the place where "the beauty of the landscape filled the soul with beauty".
