General description: Achilleion Palace

Located in Gastouri, the palace was built in 1890 for the Empress of Austria and was later bought by Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany. Over looking the sea and Corfu town this is definately a palace to bring your camera along.
 
The palace is an interest especially to English tourists as it is the birthplace of Prince Phillip.
 
In the garden there are many sculptured statues of the Greek Gods and Goddesses.
