ACHILLEION PALACE

Achilleion palace is located in the region of Gastouri on Corfu, which nowadays belongs to the municipality of Achilleion, and was built by the Empress of Austria Elisabeth of Bavaria, also known as Sissy. Sissy was a very powerful woman but soon became too vulnerable and sensitive due to the loss of her only son, Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria in the Mayerling Incident in 1889. The dominant theme of the palace is the mythical hero, Achilles, since Sissy was very keen on the ancient Greek culture and language. The architectural design of the palace is representative of a typical Phaeacian palace.
