This museum, dedicated to the Corfiot Count Ioannis Capodistrias, first governor of the modern Greek state, is situated at Koukouritsa, near the village of Evropouloi. Capodistrias excelled as a diplomat and later Foreign Minister of Russia in the early nineteenth century. He was born and spent the years of his youth in Corfu; this four-acre lot was a summer home for him and his family. The building is a typical Corfiot villa; the cool early evenings in summer, the flagged footpaths, and the unique view to the east towards the sea, the mountains of Epirus and Corfu Town, can transform each visit into an event.
