The Church at Kassiopi

Today let’s share some photos from my recent archives and I am going to begin with some Corfiot shots! We fell in love with Corfu, having never been before and were instantly gripped by it’s charm and character. We stayed in Kalami and we would hop in our hire car to take a 10 minute drive down to Kassiopi. I will share more photos of Kassiopi because we really love the little coastal resort. Now I am not normally a fan of these kinds of place but Kassiopi was a really nice place with a good blend of tourism, cuisine and history. Parts of the town are delapidated around the edges, clear signs could be seen of the effects of the economic crash that we all know about. However it had a positive vibe despite the problems of recent failures.

The Churches on Corfu all seem to bear the flags of Greece and Albania (the two-headed eagle) and many of them are not open to the public when compared to countries such as Italy. I suspect this to be due to the Orthodox nature of the religion.
