    Joining is free, very good point in favor of the fortress. Also it is all very well maintained, clean and tidy. You can, once climbed over, admiring the city from a unique perspective!

    On a Hill West of the old city lies the new citadel, overlooking the ancient port just north of her latest line of fortifications and of the city of Southwest La. The castle was founded in the 16th century after the Turkish name for siege of Corfu in 1571, count to potato, and it has been occupied since. This small castle, Citadel and it consists of two levels. The lower level is its fortified structure, five ribs and is the upper level where another layer of fortifications On this level are "Castle Fonte Perpetua" two towers called the "seven ghosts" and several buildings used as residence. The length and breadth of the new network of tunnels dug underground. The two preserved and so the Virgin church built in 1739. The culmination of the visit except sturdy walls and towers is the panoramic views the effort in its sights.

    You can't do much when you get to the top, there are internal accessible. The view though is quite impressive and pays back the little effort made to reach it

    Entrance is free but closes at 15.30. It seems like it's been abandoned - you're free to walk around outside but you can't enter any buildings. Nice views and a quiet place but be careful of wooden steps and structures - most are not maintained and many are broken and dangerous. If you have to choose, visit the old fortress instead, much more interesting and the views are better (but 6 € entrance fee).

    Interesting place with great views, and ample free parking on the nearby streets. Excellent views.

    beautiful outdoor activity. the fortress is worth the visit if you enjoy historic places. It has a beautiful view of the city and the ocean.

    The view is amazing but not easy to find the entrance, and half of the Fortress is closed.
