Lazaretto Islet (off the Old Port)

This small islet encompasses much of Corfu’s socio-political history and is now a National Monument. Hidden among the islet’s lush green landscape you’ll find a 16th Century monastery, a hospital and a leprosarium. Lazaretto was also used as an execution-place during the Civil War, and you can still see the remains of the wall where prisoners were shot as well as their graves.
