The central square of Spianada is the most significant monument of the town. The name derives from the Venetian word for an "open flat area" and it is said that it is the largest square in the Balkans. Liston which is part of the square houses some of the finest cafes and restaurants in Corfu. The French were the ones who turned the Spianada into a public square.

The Palace of Saint Michael and Saint George is located on the northern part of the Corfu town historical centre square. It is the largest and the most significant building of the English rule period, which started in 1814 and ended in 1864 when the Ionian Islands were reunified with the rest of Greece. They were built at the request of the British Lord High Commissioner, Sir Thomas Maitland, to become his own luxurious residence and to house the High Commissioner’s administrative headquarters. Today, it houses the Corfu Museum of Asian Arts, the only one of its kind in Greece, solely dedicated to the art and antiquities of the Far East and India. It was founded in 1928 and its collection currently is comprising approximately 15.000 works of Asian art and it enjoys worldwide recognition, with rare items from its collections being presented in international exhibitions.

Pass By: Jewish Synagogue

The Jewish quarter, the old Venetian “ghetto” that is still called Evraiki in Greek today, stretched across the southeast section of the city, near the Venetian fortifications. It was criss-crossed with alleyways lined with faded, multistoried houses, as in Venice. The ghetto lost its urban unity due to bombardments during the Second World War.
