Aggelokastro is the westernmost fortress of the Byzantine empire and the Despotate of Epirus, which included Corfu until 1267.
It was built in the 12th century and according to the local tradition, the inhabitants and the 8 guards, resisted so successfully that the Turks decided to retreat and leave Corfu.
