Messonghi Corfu

Psaras Village Corfu
Psaras is a traditional Village with a small stone-made harbour, more than 100 years old. Located 1KM from Messonghi village and offers hospitality and relaxing holidays.

 

Messonghi Village and Corfu Island Messonghi 
The village of Messonghi is situated on the east coast of Corfu, south of Corfu town.Unlike a number of the other southern costal resorts in Corfu, which have developed around the busy southern coastal road, the village of messonghi benefits from a location which sees the road bypass the village approximately half a kilometre inland leaving the village to nestle peacefully against the coast line while taking advantage of the ease of access and transport opportunities the coastal road brings to the other resorts.

Messonghi is relatively unspoilt by tourism, and still retains the welcoming characteristics of a Greek coastal village. You will find a variety of tavernas both on the sea front offering lovely views across to the Greek main land. Look out for the spectacular thunder and lightning storms on the mainland, its not uncommon to see spectators sitting at the variety of beach bars and taverners watching the light show during the islands warm summer evenings.

Its northeastern protrusion, close to the Albanian coast, trends east-west & reaches a peak in Pandokrator Mountain (2972 feet{906 m}); the other range, in the island’ center, is lower.

The island is well watered, fertile, and reputed to have the most attractive countryside of the Greek islands. Olive trees predominate, but figs, oranges, lemons, grapes, corn (maize) are also cultivated. Exports include olive oil, fruit, grain, & wine; Corfu’s manufactures include soap and textiles.

Modern KERKYRA, the chief city, port, and the capital of the nomos, lies on a peninsula on the east coast.

 

The twin-peaked old citadel, with fortifications built by the Venetians (1550), was once an islet. Its old town, with its labyrinth of hilly, narrow streets, is a seat of a Greek metropolitan and Roman Catholic bishop. The name Corfu is an Italian corruption of the Greek coryphai (crests).

According to legend, the island was Scheria, home of the Phaeacians in Homeric epic. A Corinthian colony established about (734 BC) supplanted a settlement of Eretrians from Euboea. Proudly independent and even hostile to its mother city of Corinth, the new colony was reduced (c.600BC) by the Corinthian tyrant Periander, but later it regained independence and devoted itself to commerce.

 

Corfu took no active part in the Persian invasion (480 BC) of Greece, but in 435 it sought the assistance of Athens in a quarrel with Corinth, a request that became a primary cause of the Peloponnesian war.

Corfu quit the war in 410, but a new alliance with Athens 375 resulted in hostilities with Sparta.

After 303,the island changed hands several times for a quarter century. Seized in 229 BC by the Illyrians it was delivered by the Romans, who retained it as a naval station and made it a free state. In 31 BC Octavian (later the emperor Augustus) used it as a base against Mark Antony, but his foundation of Nicopolis Actia on the site of his victory caused Corfu to lose a great deal of its prestige.

 

The island’s favorable position between Greece and Italy attracted powers from east and west. In succession it fell to Goths, Lombards, Saracens, and Normans and was fought over by the Kings of Sicily and the Italian city-states of Genoa and Venice.

In 1204 the island was annexed to the Greek despotate of Epirus but passed back to King Manfred of Sicily 1259 and then 1267 to the Angevins of Naples. Venetian sovereignty was restored in 1401.

Upon the dismemberment of the Venetian republic 1797, Corfu was assigned to France, but the French garrison soon was expelled by a Russo-Turkish fleet. Incorporated into the Napoleonic empire 1807 it became a British protectorate after the emperor’s final defeat 1815 British administration displeased the inhabitants, however, and in 1864 Corfu was ceded, with the other Ionian Island’s to Greece.
