One of the most important castles in Corfu, which serves for a long time to defend the island. The castle ruins are located 1000 meters above sea level and offer a wonderful view of the surroundings. The castle was built at a time when the territory was ruled by the Byzantine Empire and served to defend against the Venetians, who gained it under their rule in 1386. Later, the castle served to defend against the Turks. The castle managed to resist the Turkish invasions and was destroyed at a time when it lost its strategic importance.
