Palace of Saint Michael and George

weather forecast by weather.gr

Saint George Palace Corfu is located in the old town of Corfu and constitutes the most important monument of the period of the British rule. The Palace of Saint Michael and George is an impressive Georgian style building which was built during the British rule on the island and was the residence of the High Commissioner.

It primarily consists of white Maltese stone. The two gateways which flank the palace are the gate of St. Michael and the gate of St. George. The state rooms consist of a grand staircase, a rotunda in the centre leading to two large rooms, the Throne Room and the state dining room. The Palace was renovated for the European Union Summit meeting in 1994.

Today, Saint George Palace houses the Museum of Far Eastern Art, the only one of its kind in Greece and one of the finest in Europe.  After visiting the galleries, stop at the Art CafĂ© in the shady courtyard behind the palace, where you may have trouble tearing yourself away from the fairy-tale view of the beautiful island of Vido and the mountainous coast of Albania.A wrought-iron aerial staircase is also to be found, closed to garden visitors, descending to the sea from the gardens, and formerly used by the Greek Royal Family as a shortcut to the baths. Rewriting history, locals now refer to the old Royal Gardens as the "Garden of the People"
