Angelokastro, Corfu

This Byzantine castle is sat on the highest peak of Corfu’s shoreline on the north west coast, near Paleokastritsa.

Rocky terrain takes you up to the castle’s domed gate entrance. It is believed to have been built in the 13th-century to shield the inhabitants from African and Venetian pirate attacks. It is one of Corfu’s most important fortified complexes. Angelokastro at this time was the capital of Corfu and the Governor himself resided here. You can also see the remains of a church dedicated to the angels Gabriel and Michael which is surprisingly constructed in a cave. From the castle’s location, 1,000 feet high, you can look out onto Corfu town.
