Lying at the foot of Mount Pantokrator, on the northeast coast of Corfu, around 38km from Corfu Town, the small, picturesque village of Kassiopi is considered one of the most beautiful, quaint villages of Corfu. The town is said to have been founded during the reign of Pyrrhus, King of Epirus in the 3rd Century BC, as a supply post during his war with Rome. Although Kassiopi was once a traditional, fishing village, it has now become a popular lively resort with options for every type of traveller that has managed, however, to retain its authenticity and picturesque character.
One of the main attractions of the area is the Kassiopi Byzantine Castle, which was one of the three castles (together with the Gardiki Castle in the south and Aggelokastro in the north-western part of Corfu) that ensured the protection of the island before the Venetian period. It is also said that after the Roman conquest of Corfu in 230 BC, significant personalities including Cicero, Cato and Emperor Nero have visited this castle. Visitors to Kassiop can enjoy a romantic walk around the picturesque harbour of the village, relax in one of the seaside restaurants, bars and cafés or enjoy shopping in the small souvenir shops.
Although Kassiopi is located quite far from Corfu Town (approximately 1 hour drive), it is definitely worth the visit!
