The new fortress can be found just above the old port in Corfu town was built and designed between 1576 and 1645 by the Italian architect Francesco Vitelli and was considered to be an architectural miracle. Situated on the hill of St. Mark the building’s interior were constructed and completed by the British.
It consists of two levels, which once protected both the harbour and the city and once had a deep moat around it. There are a mired of tunnels in the new fort, which run both to the old fort and old Corfu town. On the entrance are two winged lions of St. Mark, the emblem of Venice. The two gates in the fortress have both survived.
It was partially destroyed in the Second World Ward but has been restored and now hosts exhibitions and concerts.



Somewhat hidden next to the new fort entrance and not immediately the kind of food you would expect on a Greek isle but this was a very pleasant surprise. A wide choice of good food, perfectly Mexican tastes, royal portions. Good cocktails with some original margarita variations. Assorted decoration and an extremely pleasant garden next to the fort walls makes...

Outstanding food, service, setting and atmosphere! Easily the BEST meal I have ever eaten in my life! If we come back to Corfu we will definitely be coming back here! The smell of the food cooking as we walked past during the day was incredible and this is what encouraged us to go back for an evening meal. Worth every penny. So much choice on the menu. The waiter even gave us tips on the food-fantastic service!
