Placed right on the edge of Dasaki Park in Corfu Town, the British Cemetery has been the resting place for Corfu residents of British descent since 1814! Hosting about five-hundred graves, it still is the last place of rest for the Corfu-raised Anglicans while also featuring gorgeous designs, tomb structures, and statues, like the seated lady statue of Georgios Bonanos or a replica of Michelangelo’s famous Pieta!
Many soldier and war-related tombs can be spotted in the British Cemetery of Corfu, such as graves from the First and Second World Wars, as well as the 1946 Corfu Channel Incident. Amongst the burials, there are plenty of trees and small plants, including orchids and cacti, as well as a plethora of tortoises around! Plus, spot the small-sized basin filled with goldfish and floating water lilies!
