The entrance to Koroni
The gyftika, or Kakoskali, is the first, while entering the town, neighborhood of Koroni.
On the left, the Messinian gulf, within an idyllic blue background, and
on the right the 'Tourlakou' hill, the lucky eternal spectator onto its
natural balcony. The narrow road is descending, bordered by old
mansions and shops, and soon the visitor is wondering whether he
should continue straight ahead or will he climb up the picturesque
Nevertheless, Koroni is openheartedly waiting for you as if you were to be honored.
Stepping down the cobbled wide paved little stairs, with recently
planted small trees you are brought to, just to the left, in front of
the Karapavlos', the chieftain's, mansion.
The small but lively road meets the traditional central square, which is also the town's market.
The St. Demetrios Metropolitan Church is fitting, a basilica of the
Ionian islands' art, which was built in 1864. The clock is a donation
of Moudakis in 1909.
