General History / Mythology

This large island (called Kerkyra in Greek) has played a role throughout Greece’s history. Of course, it has mythological ties – Poseidon fell in love with the beautiful nymph, Korkyra, brought her to this stunning island and subsequently named it after her. It was also the location of the largest (at the time) naval battle between Greek city states during the Peloponnesian wars (in 431 B.C.), as well as later repulsing the Ottoman empire several times. In 2007, the old quarters of the city were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
