mon repos museumMon repos Palaiopoli museum

The estate of Mons Repos was designed by the English architect Whitemore in 1864, after the attachment of the Ionian Islands to the Greek estate, the municipality of Corfu offered the palace and its gardens to the dynasty of King George to use it as a summer residence. The king George was the person who called the palace and gardens Mon Repos meaning my rest.

The Museum itself is now housed in the Mon Repos mansion and exhibts include figurines, statues, and artefacts found in Palaiopolis, including household, commercial and religious objects that reveal interesting aspects of the private and public lives led by the ancient Corfiots.

The whole area is well worth visiting and the gardens alone offer beautiful shaded walks that lead down to a secluded beach area. There are excavation works being carried out in the grounds and many ancient monuments are still being uncovered.
