The small, picturesque village of Kassiopi, with approximately 1200 inhabitants, lies at the foot of Mount Pantokrator on the northeast coast of Corfu, around 38km from Corfu Town. 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 this small, once fishing village has nowadays turned into a popular lively resort, it has still managed to maintain its true authenticity and picturesque character.
Visitors can walk around the picturesque harbour of the village where there is a variety of restaurants, bars and cafés. One of the main attractions of the village 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, important personalities including Cicero, Cato and Emperor Nero have visited this castle.
