About the Area:
Corfu or Kerkyra is a Greek island in the ionian Sea. it is the second largest of the ionian islands, and, including its small satellite islands, forms the northwesternmost part of Greece.
in 2007, the city’s old quarter was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List, following a recommendation by iCOMOS.
The northeastern edge of Corfu lies off the coast of Sarandë, Albania, separated by straits varying in width from 3 to 23 km. The southeast side of the island lies off the coast of Thesprotia, Greece.
its shape resembles a sickle, to which it was compared by the ancients: the concave side, with the city and harbour of Corfu in the centre, lies toward the Albanian coast.
Corfu’s coastline spans 217 kilometres including capes; its highest point is Mount Pantokrator 910 metres; and the second Stravoskiadi, at 849 metres.
Kerkyra has always been a cultural centre of distinction and cosmopolitanism. its museums and libraries are studded with irreplaceable books and artifacts.
Around 40 species of mammals live on the island and in the sea around it. Fin whales, sperm whales, Cuvier’s beaked whales, common bottlenose dolphins, short-beaked common dolphins, striped dolphins and Risso’s dolphins are the regularly present cetaceans.
Monk seals appear from time to time without breeding here any more. Eurasian otters still survive in the lagoons and streams of Corfu.
Corfu is mostly planted with olive groves and vineyards and has been producing olive oil and wine since antiquity. The main wine grape varietals found in Corfu are the indigenous white Kakotrýgēs and red Petrokoritho.
Local culinary specialties include sofrito (a veal rump roast of Venetian origin), pastitsada (bucatini pasta served with diced veal cooked in a tomato sauce), bourdetto (cod cooked in a peppery sauce), mandoles (caramelized almonds) and pasteli (honey bars made with sesame, almonds or pistacchios).
