Gastouri is a huge tourist village because of the Palace of Achillion located here. Achillion is one of the most important monuments of Corfu. Who has heard of Empress Sissi of Austria? This Neoclassical palace was built for Empress Elisabeth at the end of the 19th century by an Italian architect. It is an impressive building with lovely grounds and beautiful gardens, lovely porches, impressive statues of Greek heroes, philosophers and the nine muses etc. Empress Sissi was completely out of Achilles, hence the name Achillion.
