Awesome place! It's a must if you visit Corfu. The entry is free and you have a great view of the town if you climb to the top. When is very warm outside, here you can find some shade so you can cool down. I totally recommend visiting this awesome place at least one time. Also great spot for taking pictures.
The New Fortress of Corfu stands opposite the Old one on the other side of old town, which is spread between them. It was also built by the Venetians, but later, during the 17 and 18 c. The fortress looks impressive with very massive walls and fortifications and is free to visit without an entry fee. However, the working hours are very odd, as it is open only until 3PM.
views are stunning, would benefit from some information boards or a guide book so you can learn about its history and where to actually go. Seems alot of it is in accessible to the public. better off going to the old fort.
I had a wander around the grounds early May 2022..... Fantastic views across Corfu Town and beyond. No entrance fee, very clean and interesting architecture.
Fabulous fortress. We had a job to find the entrance as we could see no signs and google maps let us down. Best to use the what three words app and enter rockets.glaze.highs this will take you to the beginning of the steep walk to the top. Really interesting but would be great to have some information boards.
