Palace of St Michael& St George Tours

OVERVIEW

Located on the northern side of the historical Spianada Square, the Palace of Saint Michael and Saint George is an impressive edifice built by the English major S. Whitmore during the period 1819–1823 and considered the most important building of the British rule period in Corfu. Built as the English high commissioner’s residence, it later housed the headquarters of the Monasterial Battalion of Saint Michael and Saint George, founded in 1818 by distinguished English employees of the colony on the Ionian islands. From 1864 to 1913 the palace was used as a royal summer residence.


Today the palace houses the Museum of Asian Art, the only one of its kind in Greece, solely dedicated to the art and antiquities of the Far East and India. Inside the building, the chambers are decorated with carved mythological representations of the Ionian islands, created by the Corfiot sculptor Prosalentis. There are also lavish chandeliers and the windows exhibit the medals that Saint Michael and Saint George won. In the beautifully decorated gardens in front of the Palace, the statue of the English high commissioner Frederick & Adam is a dominating figure.


The Palace of Saint Michael and Saint George and The Museum of Asian Art can be explored with our Corfu Private Tours and Corfu Shore Excursions that include a stop in Corfu Town. Amongst our most popular tours are our Private Tour to Paleokastritsa & Corfu Town, our Private Best of Corfu: Full Day Island Tour or our Private Corfu Food Walking Tour.
