Pagi Village

A central part of the car chase in For Your Eyes Only takes place in and around the village of Pagi in Corfu. As Bond and Melina are driving into the village, they pass one of the old churches in the western part of Pagi, covered here and continue down the road where they pass a few colored houses.  

Bond and Melina are driving into Pagi from the north on the road Eparchiaki Odos Arkadades-Agiou Georgiou. This road is actually leading up to the crossing with the "low road", but from the wrong direction. If you continue down this road, you will arrive at the low road, but from the wrong direction. It becomes apparent when you compare the two pictures above that a few of the houses were being built, or at least renovated, at the time of filming. It is the facade of the yellow house in the middle (in the picture above) that has the scaffolding in front of it.
