Achilleon, Corfu

Statue of Achilles (Yes, Achilleon is named for this Greek god)

One view from Achilleon (click on photo for better view)

Everywhere we went in Greece wisteria was in full bloom

Another view from the garden (click on photo for better view)

The baby in the painting at the bottom of this reminded me of Oliver
Achilleon was the summer home for the Queen of Austria. Built in 1890, it has had many uses over the years, including being a hospital during a war. It is now open to the public and a very popular tourist site. (click on this photo to see Oliver)
