Old Perithia
Village

On the green slopes of Pantokrator, the tallest mountain of Corfu island, it is situated the abandoned village of Old Peritheia. Most scholars agree that the name of the village comes, because of its many churches,  from the phrase “About the Divine ” ( Peri=About and Theia=Divine ). Into the village you will be able to admire the numerous venetian style buildings and churches and of course enjoy a wonderful meal in one of the recent created taverns into the old buildings of the village. Old Peritheia has been known the last years apart from its historical value, and for its great food.
