  • [01] Empress Sissy's palace on Corfu to be restored

  • [01] Empress Sissy's palace on Corfu to be restored

    ANA-MPA/ The restoration of the old palace complex on Corfu, known as the Achilleion, the extension of its current museum usage was approved on Thursday by the Central Council of Modern Monuments.

    The Achilleion was built in 1889-1892 by Austro-Hungarian Empress Elisabeth ("Sissy") and after her death purchased by Kaiser William II of Germany. During World Wars I and II, the palace was abandoned and pillaged by enemy combatants. In recent years, it operated as a casino and afterwards was turned into a museum.

    The restoration project will include the complex's four buildings: the palace (the museum), the regiment building, the Baron's building and the porter's building.

    Maintenance will include reversible interventions to protect the buildings from humidity, corrosion and structural distortions. Moreover, the palace's initial main stairway (the Heine stairway), which is near collapse, will also be restored.
