Entrance to this fort is very charming, small bridge above the sea channel. Inside is not much to see, but view if the old town is beautiful. In case you wane make some nice photos, make sure you visit this fort before evening.

One of the best preserved fortresses in Greece. It stands at the end of the Old Town, and it was built by the Venezians, when they took over the island of Corfu. It played a great part on the succesful defence against the Turks.
