The outer walls are smooth without a hanger to avoid any climbs and, up close, they look really powerful.
Si può vedere solo da fuori perché è una sede militare. La mole è piuttosto imponente e dall'esterno si può notare la porta veneziana col leone di San Marco. more »You can only see it from the outside because it's a military headquarters. The mole is quite impressive and from the outside you can see the Venetian door with the lion of San Marco.
This is a great site to visit while you're in Corfu. There are many steps, and it will likely be warm, but you can get a cold drink at the sailing club or the cafe at the mid level. The latter also had slushies! The church at the base is spectacular up close, and the light house at the top is with the trek to the top. There is also a geocache hidden inside, so you can try to find that!
Looks nice and interesting from outside but unfortunately it's closed. But don't give up. Find the old fortress and go there. It will reward you with its beauty.
