Achillio palace

The well known Achillio palace dominates in one of the highest spots of Gastouri village. Gastouri became famous in the end of the 19th century when Empress of Austria Elisabeth (known as Sissy) was so much excited by the island that she decided to built there Achillio Palace.
Sissy was mesmerized by ancient Greek mythology and particularly by Achilles to whom she dedicated the palace. The statue of dead Achilles and other statues depicting gods and heroes from Greek mythology decorate the garden of the palace.
