Mon Repo Palace

 Mon Repos Palace is a neoclassical building at the east of Paleopolis, the Corfu ancient city. Built at 1830 by the British Commissioner Sir Frederick Adam at the beginning of the peninsula of Kanoni opposite the ruins of Paleopolis.

It has well laid out gardens surrounded by the old Greek monuments of ancient Corfu and spectacular sea views of all the eastern coast of Corfu island. After the union with Greece in 1864, Mon Repos was granted to the former royal family and was used as their summer residence. Today it belongs to the Greek state and is used by the Municipality of Corfu, mainly for authoritative or festive meetings. Mon Repos has been transformed into a museum and a historic place with a large park full of archaeological treasures which can be visited by all. Is an ideal place for pleasant walks under the shade of very large and old trees. One of its most interesting exhibitions in the collection of old Corfu photographs most interesting and informative.
