Unravel Ancient Secrets Through Ruins of Paleopolis and Explore Royalty's Past
Take a stroll through the park to discover the ancient town of Paleopolis, which dates back to the 8th century BC. The Corinthians moved here from mainland Greece and left behind a wealth of ruins for you to explore. Among them are the ruins of the Doric Temple of Kardaki, the Sanctuary of Hera Akraia, and the Heraio Auxiliary building.
One of the main attractions of Mon Repo is the grand mansion that was built in 1826. It was originally constructed as a summer house for an English commissioner, but it has a royal history as well. In fact, it was the birthplace of Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II of England. The royal family spent many summers at Mon Repo, and the mansion was their home during the most significant period of their residency in Greece, starting in 1864. Today, the mansion houses the Museum of Palaiopolis, where you can view archaeological finds, authentic furniture from the Regency age, and botanical samples of Corfu.
