The Ancient Fort of Corfu is built on a rocky peninsula with two distinct hills and represents the eastern border of the City. Nowadays it operates as an open museum space, housing the Corfu Historical Archive, the Public Library, the Corfu Byzantine Collection, Services of the Ministry of Culture, the preservation laboratories and exhibition/events rooms. Its free areas are used during music events. In the Sourthern part of the hill, the doric temple of St George is located.
The Archaeological Museum of Paleopolis is located within the Mon Repo palace park, it is a three-storey luxury building in a prominent position and a timeless symbol for the island of Corfu. The Archaeological Museum of Corfu houses exhibits discovered exclusively in the island of Corfu, through which its cultural presence overtime during the ancient times is revealed. The temple of Antivouniotissa is one of the most characteristic ecclesiastical monuments of the city of Corfu since the 15th century. The temple-museum was first inaugurated in 1984 and is the only “temple and museum” event in Greece.
