Viros is a large village in the center of the island of Corfu, built in verdant areas, about 6 kilometers from the city of Corfu.

Viros is a very old village which is mentioned in written sources from 1497. But, it is even older because in 1420 the surname Virotis was recorded, meaning a person who comes from Viros. In the beginning, the village was situated on top of the hill but, later the residents started building their houses lower and lower, down by the meadows. This is why today Viros consists of many scattered settlements such as Kastania, Bastouni, Souleika and Agios Georgios in Viros.

In the recent years in Viros a music scene has been organized where, the most famous artists of the Greek music industry have performed. In the region you will also find multiple rooms which you can rent as well as traditional taverns.
