This place used to be the richest village on the entire island on the entire island, but today there are only empty houses and churches left with no inhabitants. Super eery but great for a visit to see how people once lived. check it out!
 
When we last visited there was a taverna and a small gift shop/museum. It was such a beautiful village.

Wow...I can't imagine such a small village that it only has those who things. So you recommend visiting?
 
As the OP said, nothing remains but the remnants of houses, church, and maybe the school? It’s been many years since we’ve been there - but yes! If you are renting a car, exploration of the island’s villages is a must.

Yes, you will definitely need a car to get there
 
As much as I love spending the night and walking around beautiful Corfu Town, you would really be missing something if you didn’t explore the rest of the island - quite easy to do on day trips with a rental car. Otherwise you can take the buses to various beaches, but the car gives you more freedom. Try a local company (not the big names) so you csn negotiate a better rate.

Greek "ghost towns" are very eerie but cool to visit! Do we know what happened to all the people?
 

What other islands are near Corfu?

I've heard that slands like Paxos, Antipaxos, and Erikoussa, might be close to Corfu but I'm curious to learn more from you guys. What are these islands like? Are they easily accessible from Corfu? What unique attractions, beaches, or cultural experiences do they offer? If these islands aren't close, can you think of ones that are?

I want to island hop a bit this summer, and I am trying to decide if Corfu is a good home base or if I should consider another island.

Unesco World Heritage Sites of Corfu

I'm currently planning a trip to the beautiful island of Corfu and I'm keen on visiting some of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites that are located there. Being a bit of a history buff, I believe that exploring these sites can give me a deeper understanding of the island's cultural heritage and historical significance.

Thanks!
