Throughout its history, Corfu has been ruled by many conquerors, such as Romans, Angevins, Venetians, French, Russians and British; they have all left marks of their culture on the land. These diverse influences have shaped a particularly unique Corfiot style, noticeable both in architecture and the arts, and in local traditions, gastronomy and local dialect.
