Achilleion Palace, Corfu

To the south of Corfu, in the area of Gastouri, is situated Achilleion Palace, which was a common building in the past that was purchased and rebuilt by the Empress of Austria Elizabeth or Sissy. Sissy used to travel to Corfu and decided to buy this construction, that offered unparalleled views to the sea and some part of Corfu’s town.

The building was completely rebuilt by an Italian architect and was transformed into a palace, dedicated to Achilles and thus a sculpture of Achilles dominates in the brilliant gardens. Since 1982 the Greek government has decided to found a museum inside the Palace which is nowadays open to the public.
