New Fortress (Corfu Town)

The New Fortress, built in the 16th Century, stands opposite the Old Fortress and boasts the Bastion of the Seven Winds where stunning views reward your uphill trek. Widely lauded as a wonder of military architecture, the New Fortress (or Neo Frourio in Greek) beckons you to imagine what it was like to ardently defend this much-loved and highly-prized island. Completely open to the public, you can explore the site’s vaulted passageways and imposing arcades as well as a stone building built during the British period where you’ll find the Museum of Ceramic Art. Don’t miss out on the many concerts, plays and art exhibitions that take place in the open grounds of the New Fortress over the summer period.
