The impressive sea defences in Corfu Town (Kérkyra in Greek) on the beautiful Greek Island of Corfu.
In the background, the old citadel (Palaio Frourio, literally: Old Fortress (Παλαιό Φρούριο)) stands atop a rocky island on the east side of the Town. Fortifications were built on this site as early as the 6th century although the majority of what is left today is from the Venetian rule during the 14th century and later the English rule during the mid 1800s. The site was initially a peninsula but the Venetians dug a moat to convert it into an island for greater security.
Corfu is the most northerly of the Grecian Ionian Islands. It is a green and beautiful place where the pace of life is not too taxing.
