Corfu town: The main town of Corfu is one of the most interesting cities in Greece due to the heavy influence of the Venetians who for centuries controlled the island. Like the other Ionian islands Corfu was never occupied by the Turks, which gives it a character very different from the rest of Greece. But Corfu town has seen other influences as well including the British, the Normans, the French, and the Greeks and Romans whose ancient buildings are still in evidence in several archaeology sites and the excellent archaeological museum.
The town itself is divided into two parts, the old and the new areas. The old part of the town displays the elegant churches of various religions, the maze of cobbled streets, and also the Old Fortress that stands proudly, looking over the town. The new parts of the town hold the abundance of cosmopolitan shops that can satisfy everyone's tastes and demands.
Achillion Palace: The Palace, located in the village of Gastouri, was erected in 1890 for Elizabeth (Sissy), the Empress of Austria as the solace of her soul. It was used as her summer retreat. Later the Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany bought the Palace. Directly below, on the coast, is the unusual Kaiser’s bridge, the stone built jetty where the Kaiser set out on his yacht for swimming trips.
The Palace is definitely a place to take your camera. This beautiful building in picturesque gardens overlooks the sea and Corfu town. It is one of Corfu's top attractions.
The Old Fortress of Corfu: In the 13th and 14th centuries, the already existing Byzantine fortification on the islet was improved, and in the 15th century the walls were reconstructed by the Venetians. In the 16th century, the erection of all the defensive structures, designed by Venetian architects (Michele Sanmicheli), was completed. From ca. 1500 onwards, the fortified islet was used as a military and administrative centre. Few buildings of the Venetian period are preserved, such as the central gate, the powder magazines, and the prisons. During the British Protectorate (1815-1864) new defensive structures and new buildings were erected, such as the barracks, the hospital, and the church of St. George.
In the early 1980's, the Martinego bastion was consolidated and in 1993 the land-side tower was restored. In the years 1992-1994, before the Summit Conference, the Ministry of Culture restored the central gate, the former 'Latin chapel', the English barracks, the so-called 'Forseer' building.
