A ghost village lies 40 km north west of Corfu town. Palia Perithia, located at the foot of Pantokratoras mountain and at an altitude of 400 meters, is made up of abandoned, crumbling stone houses which create an eerie atmosphere.
The village is one of the attractions on the island as most of those who visit notice up close its special mysterious beauty. On Sundays it floods with visitors who come here for a walk and a traditional meal at one of the taverns. In recent years, Palia Perithia has been highlighted as a must do on Sundays.
