Maitland Monument, Corfu

At the end of the Spianada Square there is the Peristyle of Maitland commonly called Cistern. It is a beautiful construction with twenty columns built from Maltese stone in Ionian style. It serves as a cover of a big Venetian cistern and was built by Corfiots to honour the first British Governor of the Ionian Islands Thomas Maitland (1816-1824).
