The new citadel or Neo Frourio is a huge complex of fortifications dominating the northeastern part of the city of Corfu. The new citadel was until recently a restricted area due to the presence of a naval garrison, but old restrictions have been lifted and it is now open to the public, with tours possible through the maze of medieval corridors and fortifications.
The winged Lion of St Mark, the symbol of Venice, can be seen at regular intervals adorning the fortifications.
