The Old Town is cited as a well-preserved example of a fortified Mediterranean port town noted for its medieval and later forts, streets and buildings. The Ancient Greek city at Butrinto nearby in Albania is also on the list and together with Corfu Town these two local heritage sites will help to remind visitors of the historical importance of the region from ancient times onwards.

Canal d'Amour and Sidari in Corfu !!

Sidari is one of the most popular with tourists regions of the north part of Corfu and its picture-perfect gulf, the Canal d'Amour is a world-famous sight. A beach dotted with small coves and caves that nature has crafted over thousands of years is the perfect location for both romantics and the adventurous. It is said that whoever swims through the canal will find the love of their life at the end of it.
The Canal d'Amour has significant history attached to it since a settlement dated to the Middle Stone Age was uncovered there along with ceramic tools of the New Stone Age. The small island "Diaplo" opposite the canal was a prehistoric quarry and skulls and jewelry dated to be 3.700 years old are evidence that this region was prosperous in ancient times. Medieval forts, castles and walls dotted throughout the wider region of the municipality also stand testament to its history. Moreover, boats to the exquisite Diapondia islands - Othoni, Ereikousa, Mathraki - depart from the port at Sidari. These islands are the westernmost borders of Greece.
