Corfu - Useful Resources!

by Admin

Corfu offers an all-embracing account of the island's rich history, its architecture, country estates, music, social customs, people and the flora and fauna.

Cricket was the legacy left behind by the British in the 19th century. Edward Lear, the English artist, illustrator, poet and author known for his literary nonsense painted Corfiot landscapes and wrote letters describing his visits providing a vivid testimonial to Corfu's attraction.

The photographs in colour throughout in this resource are the work of two of the photographers, Fritz von der Schulenburg (whose 18th century ancestor, a mercenary general in the employ of the Venetian Republic, repelled an assault on Corfu by the Ottoman Turks) and Christopher Simon Sykes.

Working together, they have covered every aspect of the island of Corfu. The result is a pictorial record of a place to which mainland Greeks and foreigners alike feel a compelling urge to return.

Corfu is wide at the north and then gets narrower towards the south like a gun pocket. It attracts millions of people every year coming from different countries in north Europe and from Britain to enjoy the weather of the island, the beaches and the traditional Greek cuisine. Corfu is The Garden Isle
