Corfu Greece


The Greeks call the island Kerkyra, named after a nymph who was the daughter of the river god Asopus. Poseidon, god of the sea, fell in love with Kerkyra and they made love on the island, giving birth to the race of the Phaeaceans. The crystal clear waters around Corfu are a gift from Poseidon to his children.


The island of the Minotaur, a mythical creature with the head and tail of a bull and the body of a man. He lived at the center of a Labyrinth designed by the architect Daedalus at the command of King Minos of Crete. The Minotaur was eventually killed by the Athenian hero Theseus.
