Aggelokastro Fortress

Aggelokastro was the west fortress of Byzantine Empire and Epirus Domain to which Corfu belonged until 1267.
It was built in the beginning of 12th century after the transfer of Palaiokastro (todays Palaiokastritsa monastery) in a better fortified location. During the period of its flourishing, in case of an emergency, it could protect the whole population of the area (4000 people).
