Aggelokastro, in Corfu, is one of the most significant Byzantine castles in Greece. It is located very close to Paleokastritsa and it is built at the top of a steep, rocky hill. It is the most western bastion of the Byzantine Empire and of the Domain of Epirus where Corfu belonged until the middle of the 13th century. The need to transfer Palaiokastro (known today as Paleokastritsa abbey) to a more fortified place, led to the construction of Aggelokastro, in the 12th or the 13th century by Michael Angelo the 2nd. For a while, Aggelokastro was the capital of all of Corfu because of its fortified position. It was only sieged once by the Venetians, in 1386, while the besieged citizens thenceforth repelled attacks by the Turks and the pirates, including the famous Barbarossa. The castle is open only in the morning. You must be prepared to walk up the hill for approximately twenty minutes, but the view from Aggelokastro overlooking all of Corfu and the vast Ionian Sea will compensate you.
