Artist's Description

The new citadel or Neo Frourio (Νέο Φρούριο, “New Fortress”) is a huge complex of fortifications dominating the northeastern part of Corfu Town on the beautiful Greek Island of Corfu. Built between 1570 – 1580, during the Venetian rule, the huge walls of the fortress dominate the landscape. Considered to be one of the most beautiful forts in the world, the underground galleries were used for shelters during World War II.

The new citadel was until recently a restricted area due to the presence of a naval garrison, but old restrictions have been lifted and it is now open to the public, with tours possible through the maze of medieval corridors and fortifications. The winged Lion of St Mark, the symbol of Venice, can be seen at regular intervals adorning the fortifications.

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.

The Old Town of Corfu is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
