  • A short drive from Corfu Town to Kanoni, and you come out to this place. From the Kanoni peninsula there is a bridge that goes over the main island. Map of Kanoni, this beautiful little monastery. The location is very nice. From the small port there in summer, a small boat, you can sail over to "Museøen" with. This is a small island with just a single House and a church.

  • I highly recommend you visit this place. The islet is tiny, leads her narrow bridge. What's interesting-there's no crowds;) The place has something magical. The airport does not spoil the effect, it only intensifies as you can by the way see the landing planes, flying right over our heads. Entrance free of charge.

  • So picturesque this place is just like no other. You have the sea and Mouse island in the background and this lovely little monastery as seen in James Bond For Your Eyes Only surrounded by water and of course you have the planes, taking off and landing every 5 minutes just over your ! Probably the best known place in Corfu and certainly the most photographed one.So spare an hour during your visit to Corfu town.
  • A Must-see, VERY iconic landmark of CORFU The monastery is a small Chapel and souvenir shop in front of the airport runway AMAZING views of planes about to land, and on the other side also spectacular view from the plane when about to land. Free entrance.
  • Must-see, must-photograph, most iconic landmark of Corfu. The monastery is now only a small Chapel and souvenir shop but it's easy to get lost in its history. Spectacular views of planes about to land, and likewise also spectacular view from the plane. Free entrance.
  • Stunning place! It is even more beautifull than in the pictures!!!
  • It is like a gem. You can walk to this little Monastery on the water through a little footbridge at the end of the runway of the airport, almost touching the bellies of the planes.
