It is still unkown to many that Corfu Town was the first Greek territory in which industrialization took place and, also, that Corfu used to have factories of all kinds and most of them worked until the early 1980s. The heart of Corfu’s industrial activity was Mantouki, an old traditional and labour district, close at the same time to the harbor and the Old Town of Corfu. where Its location was useful and efficient for the industries to receive raw materials and send away their products.
The industrial workers of Corfu built their houses all around the district of Mantouki, creating this architecturally magical suburd where one can find LOC Hospitality’s apartments. A purely working quarter, where the circumstances and the stubbornness of its inhabitants did not allow any alteration of its character. On the contrary, it is a living monument of Corfiot modern history.
