Apart from being a place of unique beauty, Corfu island is closely connected to ancient Greek mythology too. Myth has it that Poseidon fell in love with the beautiful nymph Korkyra – the daughter of the river god Asopus and Metope and sister of Aegina. And just like Zeus did with Aegina, Poseidon abducted Korkyra and brought her to an up-till-then unnamed island, which later took the nymph’s name. Poseidon and Korkyra had a child together. His name was Phaiax, and the island’s inhabitants were called Phaiakes after him, with Corfu also being known as the island of the Phaeacians. The modern history of the island features the Venetians and the British. All these have left their marks in architecture and cuisine. Corfu is a great destination for families!
