Great views of Corfu town and surrounding sea. The fortress itself has several interesting buildings (especially the neo-classical church) & old canons. Entry is cheap (€3) with a student card.

It was hot walking up to top but views were amazing. Worth it to do that. Worth going to New Fort to look across to Old Fort.

Not much to see here - when I visited, only two exhibitions were open: one with a handful of Bizantine artifacts, and another with a few pictures. All the other buildings were closed. I could only enjoy the nice views from the ramparts.

This fort can be seen from so many vantage points in the area. It is a remarkable landmark and truly worth a visit if you have the time to do so!

I went to the fortress during a visit to Corfu Town, it is impressive. The entrance cost is 6 Euros for adults. The site is fairly large with some steep slopes and steps, so not suitable for people with mobility difficulties, The lighthouse can be...More
