Kassiopi fortress

weather forecast by weather.gr

The oldest fortress on Corfu island is found in Kassiopi, and is dated back to the mid-12 century. It was built by the Romans, in order to protect the town and its port from attacks and invasions. The Kassiopi fortress is placed on top of a hill to the north of the town, providing a spectacular view to Kassiopi. Many visitors venture up to take a look but little remains of the original structure, as it was seriously damaged by the Ottomans and the Venetians, who were said to have used the building material to reinforce the towers of Corfu town. The main gate is still evident and sections of the walls that encircle the entire area. Restorations are currently taking place.
