Paleokastritsa is located on the northwest coast of Corfu. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful resorts of Corfu. It consists of six different small coasts and rocky beaches with crystal blue sea water.
From almost each coast small boats can take you to a boat trip to the caves that can be found along its coastline to admire the crystal water and the beauty of the nature.
There are two most known and important caves that you will be visiting. The first one is called Nausica Cave, named after the daughter of the King of the Phaeacians. It is said that she found in there Odysseus and nursed him back to health.
The second most worthseeing one is called Blue Eye due to a patch of incredibly blue water which resembles an eye. Above the main coast on a hillside full of wild trees and olive trees facing the deep blue sea stand the Monastery of Theotokos.
The Monastery was built around 12th century and inside in one of the cells a museum has been founded with Byzantine and post Byzantine icons. In the main courtyard of the monastery there is also an old well where you can throw a coin and make a a wish which with the blessings of Virgin Mary Theotokos it will probably come true.
Close to Paleokastritsa is the very well known village of Lakones. From this village the view is spectacular, even better from the one you can enjoy from the Hill of Monastery of Theotokos. So at Lakones we have planned your next stop.
