The picturesque village chosen by the Emperess of Aystria, Sissy, to find peace and the appropriate   climate   that would be beneficial for her damaged health. Here many important Corfiot families kept their country houses. The palace of the Emperess gave new life and wealth to the village which is today full of mansions and summer houses of the 18th and 19th centuries with distinctive marks of luxury .

Gasturi,copyrights:View/Copy/Print but not Publish Gasturi,copyrights:View/Copy/Print but not Publish The village was built on the slopes of the mountain Agioi Deka and it has points of unique view, like Bella Vista and Belvedere. You should get off the car, to walk through the tiled streets with the stone mansions. Don't forget to buy fresh bread from Ector's traditional bakery. Take a look at the country house of the Voulgari's family, built in 1715, hidden in an impressive garden. The family who possessed the holy reliques of Saint Spyridon used to spend their holidays here; among its members were famous scholars and teachers of the Greek intellect like Evgenios Voulgaris.

Of course don't miss the palace of Emperess Sissy, the well-known" Achilleion ".
