Venetian Fortresses


Both these fortresses have been structured at the old centre of Corfu’s town, named after the Venetians who have constructed them back in the 1500-1600s. Their main purpose was to protect the island from the Turks, even though nowadays they stand tall and act as a main attraction of Corfu. If you get up on the fortresses, you will enjoy spectacular vistas of the Ionian Sea and the mainland of Greece. There is also a museum worth visiting there, along with a picturesque café for you to relax and relish Garitsa Bay and its natural beauty.
