    In a lovely high valley, directly below the mountain Pantokrator, lies the abandoned mountain village Paleo Perithia. The village was built in the 14th century high up in the mountains to be protected from the two greatest dangers of the time: pirate attacks and summer malaria outbreaks. The village was then considered one of the wealthiest settlements in Corfu and counted for his wedding over 1,200 residents. In the 1950s, there were no more Malaria cases in the Greek islands and the first tourists created many new jobs on the coast. As a result, the residents left the picturesque village until all had moved out in the 1960s. The village fell into a deep sleep until it was declared a National Monument in the 1990s. Since then it is experiencing a new flowering. Meanwhile, individual houses have been lovingly restored and visitors can be pampered in several taverns. If you want to enjoy the tranquility and seclusion of the place for even longer, you can also stay at 'B & B Merchants House'. On our round trip you will explore the entire village and the surrounding valley.From the free parking lot at the village entrance, you first wander to the small village square. Here you will find three rustic taverns with first class Greek cuisine. Passing the small church of Agios Spiridon, you will pass individual, completely overgrown houses.You pass the cemetery, which is not accessible to visitors. You follow a dirt road that offers you a magnificent view over the valley and the small village. On the edge of the dirt road are individual stone houses in which whole trees or huge blackberry bushes grow.After your round you can still take the time to visit one of the taverns. The most beautiful is the tavern Old Perithia at the old village square. There you can sit on the shady terrace and enjoy the view of the mountains.
