The amazing Old Fortress, located in the old town of Corfu belongs to the landmarks of this island. This magnificent fortress was built during the Venetian occupation in the 16th century. Around the fortress there is a moat, separating it by the town centre.
Nowadays, visitors may find inside the Old Fortress the Church of St. George and a museum with a collection of Byzantine icons and sculptures. Except for its cultural significance, the Old Fortress affords panoramic views to the town of Corfu and the Ionian Sea.
