Mount Pantokrator: Corfu

Holidaymakers visiting the island will not find a better spot from which to view the island and surrounding scenery as well as take photos of their chosen holiday destination.

On clear days it is even possible to see Italy, despite it lying 80 miles away from the island.

Reaching the peak is perfect for holidaymakers who enjoy walking and it will certainly be worth the walk as the views of the surrounding area are one of the highlights of the Corfu experience.

Inquisitive travellers who may want to stay on the peak for a little while before beginning their descent will want to explore the monastery on top of the peak which was first built in 1347.

Since then it has been destroyed but was re-built during the 1500s with the current remains dating from the late 1600s.

Snow occasionally caps the peak during the winter months.
