Kanoni was once the capital and heart of the island it is rich in nature, history, and culture. The name Kanoni (canon) is derived from the canons that were protecting the city at the entrance of the lagoon, once the main port of the island, one still stands as a reminder of its turbulent history.
Steps go down the hill from Kanoni and you reach the small church of Panagia Vlacherna. A narrow passageway connects the island with the church. Constructed in the 17th century, this lovely chapel has an impressive wooden carved iconostasis and beautiful frescoes inside. The roof has red tiles and above the gate entrance, there is a tall bell tower. Fishing boats depart frequently from the church and go to the legendary Mouse Island, just 5 min boat ride. This lush green island took this name due to its tiny size. According to mythology, this rocky island is the ship of Ulysses that was stoned by god Poseidon. In the centre of the Mouse Island, there is the 13th century church of Pantokrator. This church celebrates on August 6th with a large religious panigiri for Corfu.
