About New Fortress, Corfu

The New fortress was built by Venetians to include the area left out of the old Fortress and to buckle-up Corfu’s defense. Even though initiated by the Venetians, the fortress was completed under the British rule and was built around 1570-1580 by the Italian architect Fransisco Vitelli. The new fortress is known for its 2 levels of construction which provided a good vantage point for detecting intruders.

The fortress is smaller than the old one and is a fine example of engineering and defense tactics. Take a walk along the 16th century ruins as you truly understand the genius behind mere walls.
