Paleokastritsa is situated on the northwest coast of Corfu, 13 km away from Dassia and 25 km away from Corfu Town. The resort is hilly and nestles beneath the folds of steep verdant slopes, olive groves and citrus orchards.
Paleokastritsa has been considered for a long time as one of the most beautiful villages in Corfu and is a renowned spot of Greek beauty.
At the northern most promontory(Agios Spyridon), lies the 12th century monastery of Theotokos. The Monastery stands on a sheer hillside full of wild and olive trees, facing the deep blue sea. In one of the cells of the monastery a museum has been founded, where holy and precious relics of the monastery are housed.
Magnificent views are obtained from both the monastery and the area of the hills above, particularly from the village of Lakones.
