“The Old Fortress of Corfu (Venetian: Fortezza Vecchia) is built on a rocky peninsula with two characteristic hills (top) and is the eastern end of the city. The location of the peninsula lies to the east of the ancient city of "Corcyra", between the Gulf of Corfu to the north and the Gulf of Garitsa to the south. This location was an ideal choice as it allowed easy access to the maritime network and full control of the neighboring coasts, while high fortifications in combination with the artificial moat made it impossible for any raider to access.”

“Άλλο ένα δείγμα της μεγάλης οχυρωματικής ικανότητας των Ενετών, αλλά και ένα θαύμα αρχιτεκτονικής τέχνης που έχτισαν οι Ενετοί με την αναγκαστική εργασία των κατοίκων από το 1576 μέχρι και το 1645. Στην είσοδο του φρουρίου δεσπόζει ακόμη το έμβλημα της Βενετίας, το λιοντάρι του Αγίου Μάρκου ενώ μέσα στο φρούριο αξίζει να δει κανείς τις υπόγειες στοές, τα υδραγωγεία και τις αποθήκες πυρομαχικών. Το φρούριο φιλοξενεί επίσης το Μουσείο Κεραμικής τέχνης, εκθέσεις φωτογραφίας, ζωγραφικής, γλυπτικής αλλά και συναυλίες και άλλες καλλιτεχνικές εκδηλώσεις. Μέσα στο φρούριο υπάρχει και ο Ναυτικός σταθμός Κέρκυρας του πολεμικού ναυτικού.”
