Old Fortress

The Old Fortress (Palaio Frourio), situated on Corfu's eastern side, spans the promontory once home to the ancient town, dating back to Byzantine times. Built by the Venetians, it stands as a symbol of their dominance in the Ionian Sea and remains a prominent landmark of the island. Today, visitors are invited to explore its historic grounds and discover the fascinating areas within.
