  • The village is placed in the centre of the island, surrounded by hills and olives. Absolutely worth visiting and spending there 2-3 hours to enjoy old buildings. When you wander inside try to imagine how life here may have looked like, why settlers decided to start a village there... After sightseeing you may spend nice time on ice frappe in local canteen. Oh - don't go o the spring next to the village. Not worth it...
  • Well conserved old village. You need around an hour to walk through it.
  • It seems like the time has stopped there. Absolutely peacefull place.
  • Really beautiful place to visit.
  • Jedna od interesantnih atrakcija Krfa, staro, napušteno selo u kome radi nekoliko restorana i prodavnica suvenira. Nekada naseljeno mesto, danas ostavljeno na nemilost zubu vremena.
