Angelokastro is one of the most important Byzantine castles in Greece. It is located in the northwestern part of Corfu, on the top of a rock rising 305 m above the sea.

In order to go there, you have to pass through the center of the village of Krini. The road is narrow and some turns are very sharp but there are enough signboards to lead you to the castle once you have found Krini.

When you arrive, you will reach a small parking lot with cafe and ticket booth where tickets are sold. The price per adult is EUR 3. Be aware of the time - the castle is open for visitors from 10 am to 3 pm (except for Mondays) and no one will let you enter it after 3 pm, no matter how many people you are.

On the way up you have to climb many stairs. In the inner part of the castle there is an acropolis, a church devoted to Archangel Michail and the ruins of a tower, garrison and graves. Three sides of the castle are protected by the rocks which slope down precipitously. In clear weather you can see almost the entire island from the top.
