The name of the entire area, Anemomilos (windmill) comes from the reconstructed windmill which stand at the edge of Garitsa bay, the windiest point this side of the town, once served the milling needs of town. This is a very small beach right next to the road separated only by the pavement and is used by local who want a quick dip in the morning before going to work or visitors who need some refreshing. Perhaps more popular is the pier right next to the beach, with its full view of Garitsa bay, the town and Old Fortress. Despite the total lack of a beach some people like to swim in clear blue waters but resent getting their feet dirty in the sand and simple fact that you can drive, park, go for a swim, have a cup of coffee and drive away is just too connivent for many not to come here. The pier also provides shelter to a number of small boats of a local club and a landing point to the many yachts which anchor in Garitsa bay during the summer.
In the beautifully preserved Old Town of Corfu, a UNESCO world heritage site, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical “repertoire” came to be successfully applied to local artistic traditions. Palaces, fortresses, austere public buildings of the Venetian rule uniquely blend with lines of drying washing in tiny alleyways and small secluded squares. Strolling through a complex of narrow cobbled streets with stairways and vaulted passages, the so-called “kantoúnia”, will make you feel as if you’ve travelled to Genoa or Naples.
Discover the most beautiful spots in the city of Corfu walking through:
• Spianáda, the largest square in the Balkans, is the centre of the city, adorned with 19th-century remarkable works of French architecture. Here you can watch cricket games, or attend in musical concerts organised throughout the year.
• Listón, the city’s trademark, where the aristocrats used to enjoy their evening promenades. The characteristic arcades form the most romantic background setting for a welcome cup of coffee at one of the town’s cosy cafés.
• The smart suburbs: Mandoúki, Garitsa and Sarókos.
The most important city’s attractions bear eloquent witness to its rich history:
• The impressive 15th century Old Fortress, as well as the New Fortress.
• The Saint Michael and George Palace at the northern part of Spianáda, built during the British occupation.
• A considerable number of churches. The most imposing one is the city’s Cathedral, the Church of St. Spyridon, the island’s patron Saint, whose relics are kept here. The church’s immensely tall bell tower certainly reminds us of that of San Giorgio dei Greci in Venice. Four processions are held every year during which the body of Saint Spyridon is carried around the streets of the city (on Palm and Easter Sunday, on April 11th and the first Sunday in November). All the philharmonic bands of the city accompany the processions creating a remarkable awe-inspiring spectacle.
