About Mon Repos Palace

Mon Repos is a palace located just south of Kerkyra in the forest of Palaiopolis. It’s a short 5 minute drive from the capital and if you’re feeling energetic you could even walk that journey in about half an hour.

Mon Repos Palace was formally a residence for the British commissioner as well as housing a school of fine art. It is also famous as the birth place of several Royal babies including Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh on 10 June 1921.

Nowadays it is known as Paleopolis Archaeological Museum and houses artefacts from Corfu towns history including pottery, icons, statues and artwork too . The house itself is a little run down, as is the garden that surrounds it. It’s nice to walk through the surrounding forest, park and archaeological sites nearby but remember your mosquito repellent.

Entrance to the grounds is free, but if you want to go in to the house then it’s 4€ per person.
