New Fortress Corfu

weather forecast by weather.gr

Built in 1577-78 by the Venetians, the Corfu New Fortress was constructed to strengthen town defenses—only three decades after the construction of Venetian fortifications on the "Old" Fortress. For its construction materials from Paleopolis, the ancient city, were used. In order to free space for the construction of the walls, 2.000 houses were demolished and thousands of golden Venetian ducats were spent. A part of it was destroyed after an order given by the Great Powers during World War II. Today you can wander through the maze of tunnels and fortifications; the dry moat is the site of the town's fish-and-vegetable marketplace. A classic British citadel stands at its heart. At the top, there is an exhibition center.
