     History
    Old Perithia was built in Byzantine times, and is hidden in the hills of Corfu.

    This mountain village was once the bustling home to 1,500 people, but today about six people live here, and the rest of the village is a tangle of crumbling stone walls and deserted squares.

     Future Plans
    the homes are for sale and judging by the tourism in the rest of Corfu it will be only a matter of time before the ghosts are replaced by soon to be ghost pasty skin fanny pack toting tourists.

    2014: Still well off radar of hordes of tourists but you wont be the only one up in mountain village. A truly great place a perfect mix of abandoness and a few surviving residents that run a few resturants up there. No other shops or alike. The township is yours to explore. Heaps up there to fossick around for the day.
