Angelocastro

610_7351-e_wToday, I take you on a trip to the north-western coast for visiting an old castle built by the Venetian Republic many centuries ago when Corfu was part of their state.

It way uphill ist very steep, but well paved. At the foothill you can find a tiny parking lot and a restaurant. I wasn’t in the restaurant, because we have had another plan for that day.

Just in case, you plan to climb up to the castle, I’d recommend taking enough water with you. There is no option to get some (expect in the restaurant). But, it’s really worth climbing up to the castle, you have a wonderful sight over the cliffs and the sea. The air smells like a fresh pizza from all the wild herbs.

Stay tuned!

  1. The sea colours are incredible – that gorgeous dark blue. Were you using a polarising filter? And that air with the aroma of wild herbs that must have been tantalising.

    • Yes, Liz. I often use a polarizer when having this kind of weather.
      My son said: oh, it smells like a fresh pizza 🙂
      He already got that smell, when we left the plane.
