Agioi Deka village nestles on a hill some 250 meters up on the side of the second largest mountain in Corfu, standing at 576 meters above sea level. Agioi Deka means ten saints in Greek and the story goes that 50 Christian saints were being persecuted in Albania.

 
Ten escaped to Corfu and set up a monastery on top of the mountain. The forty who were left behind were martyred hence the name of the port in Albania (opposite Kassiopi) which is called Agioi Seranda (the forty saints).
