About the Venetian Castle
The Venetians controlled Zante for hundreds of years and the Mediterranean empire certainly left its mark. Among the vestiges of Venetian rule is the Venetian Castle, just outside the capital of Zakynthos Town.
This hilltop park is a picture-perfect spot for relaxing walks or stunning photo ops. The Venetians constructed their formidable fortress in the 15th century atop the island’s ancient acropolis and regularly made improvements and renovations during their reign, even when it was ransacked by rival Turks or natural disasters.
Today, archaeological excavations of the ruins continue to uncover snippets of Zante Island’s past. As you explore the grounds, you’ll see the remains of prisons, churches, and more.
