This island fronting Corfu Town on the north side. During World War I Serbian soldiers were interned and many here died; an imposing white stone mausoleum collects the remains in two wings closed with dovecotes relaxing at the sides of an altar. From 10 every morning a boat leaves every hour from the old port and door to the island for 2 € ar in less than fifteen minutes. The vision of Corfu expanse between the old and the new fortress is postcard. Wooded with a pine forest of VIDO appears very pine trees and rare eucalyptus trees. The Marina a tiled Street runs into the pine forest along the East Coast for 500 metres until the mausoleum made of white stone blocks. A central entrance with altar and two corridors that collect the niches of the fallen. A moment of meditation on wars it requires the attention of the living. The road continues towards the center island, passing through a junkyard and arrives on the Esplanade North where I find a boy scout camp committed to give him a dignified appearance. On the Esplanade in Central South a ruined environment around a House that had a certain dignity, surrounded by Palm trees died because of "Red Palm Weevil", a parasite North African who made havoc in the Mediterranean. In this squalor he found a camp of boys in primary schools; an instructor tells me not to photograph them! I finish the rounds in just over an hour and I show up to the boat traveling at 11.30show original
