About Vlacherna Monastery

Vlacherna is a small monastery on an islet located in the bay to the south of Kanoni. Vlacherna is close to Mouse island, which you can see in the background of the photo above. There’s a small chapel a place to light a candle and a gift shop. Don’t expect to spend a great deal of time here but combined with a boat trip over to mouse island, which can be taken from here for about 5€, it makes for a nice morning or afternoon out.

To get to Vlacherna Monastery you have to go through Kanoni, park up in the car park and then walk along the narrow jetty leading up to the monastery itself. From the monastery there are lovely views over the bay and it’s also a great spot for watching the planes approaching Corfu airport as they fly low down when coming in to land.

For those that like a walk you can head across the causeway to the other side of the bay and the village of Perama. There’s also some cute semi wild cats and dogs that live on the islet who seem to be fed by locals and are friendly to visitors.
