Well, it's said to be the largest square in the Balkans...I'm not sure if it actually is. The area of the square used to be a fortification between the castle and the city. You can also check out Durrell’s Monument in the square. It was built to honor Gerald and Lawrence Durrell, an author and zoologist, who spent their early years on the island of Corfu.

This looks like a great place - neat how it is one of the largest squares in the Balkans. Some things to do while in Corfu - some of the things are near the square:

This square is lovely! I remember I loved walking through it, and I even ate at one of the nearby restaurants. I will definitely be sure to pass through here again while I am in Corfu.

What was Corfu like ten years ago? I went last year but my mom says that most of Greece is way different now than it was then. I wonder how it has changed. Cheers and greetings from Capetown!

Ten years ago it was beautiful as always, but there was some evidence of the financial crisis Greece was in at the time. I believe they were going through one of the periods where they were receiving emergency bailout money. Although people were out and about, there was a bit of an aura of stress and anxiety underneath the surface. Now and then, I'd see a closed shop. Greetings!!!

Did you know about Corfus traditional carnival?

The carnival in Corfu happens on the three Sundays leading up to Lent. The holiday starts on the Sunday of the Prodigal Son, which will be Sunday, February 20 in 2022! Start making your travel plans now! You can check out the carnival in Corfu City in either Liston or Spianada squares. Locals walk around in aristocratic costumes and there are great games for kids!! I highly recommend checking out!

Lake Korission is so underrated!

When people think of Greece they think of beaches but there are so many beautiful lakes, lagoons and rivers! This is a beautiful lake to visit in Corfu if you're looking for some unique nature

Palaia Peritheia is Corfus ghost town

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!
