Kanoni & Mouse Island
A truly unique location near Corfu Town (2km).
It was named Kanoni (cannon) after the battery of artillery which was established by the French in 1798. In the sea below Kanoni, the Monastery of Vlaherna is situated (built in the 17th century), linked to the mainland by a pier.
Directly across the Vlaherna monastery, the verdantly green Mouse Island (Pontikonisi) can be seen. This stunning view is the contextual trademark of Corfu.
