Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Monastery of Pantokrator, set on Corfu highest peak is really nice, specially the small Chapel which is very richly decorated.
Don't pay for the tours, but rent a car - every car can drive up, and roads are not that bad.
However, the huge metal antenna built above the Monastery is the most idiotic thing I saw.
It ruins the whole scenery and I wonder how anybody got the idea and even worse, allowed that monster to be built there?
All around are outstanding views of Corfu and towns of Saranda and Ksamil across the sea in Albania.

quite a steep mountain, it is better to buy tours for sale at 35 € / person and get there comfortably, saving calories and feet. there is an opportunity to see the oldest olive grove on the island. near the top is a chimney with a great restaurant with fun staff. Good time.

You can visit the entire site in about 15 minutes. The chapel itself is small but unlike anything I have seen. It is really beautiful. On top of the site is a giant antenna which gives a funny contrast. The kids loved all the stray cats. There were a lot of them. Right outside the site you can have coffee or lunch with a breathtaking view. Definitely recommended.

I would not like to be the one driving up the narrow path that leads to the highest point in Corfu. We took a bus trip which included the Monastery. Beautiful building and what a view! Then we headed down the mountain to a place called Sunset Taverna and had a lovely meal watching the sunset.

HI!

If you come to Pantokrator Mountain, please visit this tiny church.

I haven`t been such a small church, still there are all. There are only few seats, light is dim. Place feels like very holy, because everything is so near and small.

You can smell incense and hear musik if you stay there few moments.

Test your hire car to the extreme with the drive up to the summit. Such fun hairpin bends you need a lot of first gear. Top tip: when parking, turn round before the parking area fills up and park facing home. The three point turn on the mountain top can be hairy, avoiding reversing off the edge 😀. So the monastery is sweet, nicely refurbished but the views from the top of Albania and Corfu are great. Nice little cafe of course. Worth the trip.

It's well worth the drive to get to the top of the mountain, not just for the monastery but for the breathtaking views of Corfu and across to mainland Greece and Albania.

Be sure to visit the gift shop, as purchases there go to support the upkeep of the monastery.

Get there early though, parking is a little limited and can get quite full in busier periods.

Mount Pantokrator is a mountain located in north-eastern Corfu. At 906 meters, it is the highest mountain on the island. At the summit, the whole of Corfu can be seen, as well as Albania which lies a short distance from the island. On particularly clear days it is also possible to see Italy despite it being around 130 km away. At the top there is a café for tourists, a telecommunications station, whose largest tower stands directly over a well, and a monastery. The first monastery on the site was Angevin, built in 1347 but then destroyed sometime around 1537. The current church on the site dates from around 1689, and the current facade was built during the 19th century. It is dedicated to the transfiguration of Christ.

The views from the monastary are breathtaking.. both inland & across the straight to the Albanian coast.
It's such a shame that someone thought to stick a massive aerial in the middle of the monastary yard.. it really spoils the location.
There's a nice cafe but beware, it's very overpriced!

My partner and I visited the monistary today at a bit of a whim and I'm so glad we did.

A trip to Greece always brings us to a monistary for some reason and I'm glad this is the one we visited on our l trip to Corfu.

The monistary is on the highest peak and provides some outstanding 360 views of the entire island, Albania and the Mediterranean Sea.

The monistary itself is a quaint building with the alter adorned in silver with mostly restricted access past the main Chapel.

Ladies must cover their shoulders when they enter the grounds, but scarfs are provided, free of charge (donation welcome).

There's a small cafe just outside the grounds that offer food and drinks with the most breathtaking views of the Albanian coast and mountains.

The drive up the mountain can be a bit touch and go at time and I would recommend a quad over a car.

There are many antennas build around and in the monistary, however this just adds to the charm in my opinion.
