Kassiopi Castle (Kastro in greek) is a castle on the northeastern coast of Corfu overseeing the fishing village of Kassiopi. 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 Castle guarding the island's south, Kassiopi Castle the northeast and Angelokastro the northwest
Kassiopi harbour is the focal point of the town's social life by day and a pretty trendy place by night. There are numerous bars and a mix of tourist and traditional restaurants serving greek as well as mexican, chinese and italian dishes. Nightlife is fairly lively with bars and discos providing evening entertainment. Some cafe bars for a light meal and refreshments are also available on the beach, where you can enjoy your coffee or your drink having a great view of the sea
