The Mon Repos Palace was built in the early 19th century as a gift from the British Lord High Commissioner of Ionian Island – Frederick Dam for his second wife Diamantina Palatino. However, the Palace was shortly vacated as Adam was sent to serve in India in 1932.
Since then the Palace was converted for many uses across centuries including as a Fine Arts School and as a summer home for King George I. The house was also where Queen Elizabeth’s husband was born.
Today the House accommodates an Archaeological museum which showcases rare Ionian treasures and a nearby garden open for visitors.
