What's Angelokastro like

Angelokastro is a Byzantine castle located on the west coast of Corfu, it’s about 27km from the islands capital and that’s normally just under an hours drive.

Angelokastro was pivotal in defending Corfu from invaders and pirates and it’s not hard to see why, the location and approach to the castle would have made it almost impossible to attack from any direction. Today the castle is open to the public, usually between 10.00 and 17.30 with a 2€ entrance fee.

Although the majority of the castle has fallen into disrepair there is a small underground chapel that’s interesting to have a look around. Angelokastro is about 1000 feet above sea level which means it offers incredible views over the west coast and Corfu as a whole so it’s a worthwhile trip for the views alone.

Getting to Angelokastro is a bit tricky as there’s a road that leads to a cafe and a small amount of parking then there’s a 200m walk up the steps to the castle itself. Just remember to take a bottle of water and any other supplies with you as there’s nothing available after the cafe. It’s also advisable not to attempt this journey in the mid day heat as the path up can be challenging, particularly in the hottest months.
