Skripero is amphitheatrically built on the mountain "Korakio" and is crossed by two roads, Corfu - Sidari, and Corfu - Paleokastritsa. It is located 8 km from beautiful Paleokastritsa and the bay of Liapades, both landscapes of unique beauty.

As for the origin of the name, one opinion says that it comes from the Italian word “scrivero” which means write. Another view says that it comes from the Albanian word "skrapar" which means fortress.
