Maitland Monument, Corfu

This neoclassical monument sits at the end of Spianada Square and was built in the early 19th-century to honour British military officer Sir Thomas Maitland.

It is visible in the 1981 Bond film For Your Eyes Only. Originally the structure was built out of limestone, with the design belonging to Colonel George Whitmore of the Royal Engineers and the sculptural work was done by the local sculptor Pavlos Prosalentis. Since then it has been damaged due to erosion and was restored in 2004. The monument was built on top of a Venetian-era underground water cistern and the two entrances were intended to be used by those who still used the tank afterwards.
