Overview of Kanoni

South East Corfu Island, Corfu Island

World famous Kanoni is situated south of the Palaiopoli peninsula. It was named Kanoni after the battery of artillery established by French in 1798. One of the battery's cannons still stands at the tourist kiosk. In front of Kanoni is the Monastery of Vlaherna, linked to the mainland by a cement dock and built in the 17th century. From there one can visit Pontikonissi. According to the legend, this was the ship of Phaiakes which, after taking Ulysses to Ithaki, was petrified. Another legend claims that this is the rock where Ulysses crashed because of the storm. On the island of Pontikonissi stands the byzantine chapel of Pandokrator.
The spectacular view from Kanoni inspired the German painter Becklin to draw "The Island of the Dead". This location is the most charming part of the island and it has always been the place where all the island's inhabitants love to promenade.
