Visit Kassiopi Castle

Kassiopi Castle is a castle on the northeastern coast of Corfu overseeing the fishing village of Kassiopi. Its access is from the footpath opposite the bell tower of the Church.

It was one of three Byzantine-period castles that defended the island before the Venetian era (1386–1797). The castles formed a defensive triangle, with Gardiki guarding the island's south, Kassiopi the northeast and Angelokastro the northwest. Its position at the northeastern coast of Corfu overseeing the Corfu Channel that separates the island from the mainland gave the castle an important vantage point and an elevated strategic significance. Kassiopi Castle is considered one of the most imposing architectural remains in the Ionian Islands,[4] along with Angelokastro, Gardiki Castle and the two Venetian Fortresses of Corfu City, the Citadel and the New Fort.

The church of Kassiopi is a significant historical, religious and cultural monument which embraces a history of centuries within its walls.

The entrance’s stone ledges are believed to be remails of Kassios Zeus’ temple. In the church yard, there is a triangle-shaped marble, with a carved cypress on it and the remails of a Catholic spring. Next to the priest’s quarters lay a small sarcophagus which was discovered buried nearby. Remnants of the past, incorporated in the new building to remind Kassiopi’s history and grandeur.

The interior of the church is impressive despite its small scale. The magnificent templum is made of white marble. It is decorated with icons depicting scenes from the New Testament while the ceiling over the Holy Altar is decorated with huge mural of Virgin Mary.
