Artist's Description

Kassiopi is a lively resort at the North East corner of Corfu. A charming little fishing village, with a traditional port. Tourism has had its influence, but you can still find local fishermen bringing home the morning catch down at the harbour.

Above the town are the remains of Kassiopi Castle.

The remains overlook the harbour and continue around the headland. The castle has Roman foundations but the visible remains above the ground are Byzantine. The castle was subsequently fortified further by the Venetians, and survived sieges from the Ottoman Turks in the 1500’s. Today the castle is mainly ruinous, but parts of the walls can be seen from the coastal road around the headland.

You can walk among the ruins and the top ramparts offer an excellent view of the Albanian coastline. Recent efforts are being made for its restoration.

Corfu is the most northerly of the Grecian Ionian Islands. It is a green and beautiful place where the pace of life is not too taxing.
