We tried to get in from all angles of the park but the only gate we found was locked. It looked like a nice place to wander around, so it was disappointing we wouldn’t get in.

There are lovely gardens here, it is cool and shady and tortoises roam around freely. Many old and new graves here, including some war graves. Very peaceful and a nice place to visit. A bit tricky to find but worth the effort.

I believe this summer there was only little rain in Corfu and the ground was very dry. I expected there would be grass and flowers but it was mostly sand, trees, bushes and some aloe plants. It is tranquil place with old gravestones and soldier's...More

A very peaceful place to visit and reflect on those who came before us. There are some lovely well looked after war graves too and well worth visiting as a mark of respect. A great place.

As the previous person says and I agree, the caretaker has a house within the Cemetary, so I think every day during daylight. It isn't a very well signposted place or gate, but worth the searching!
