"The historical centre of Corfu town is delimited by the two fortresses.
Along the east side there’s the ancient fortress on the sea, while on the west side there’s the new one.
During the past the two fortresses of Corfu were linked by large walls, so that the inhabitants could live safe inside.
The walls were destroyed and today there are only two of the four gates of the town. One is called “Porta di Spilia” (Spilia gate), known also as Boati arch, just in front of the old port.
The second one is the gate of San Nicola, placed under the level of the coast road, at the end of the Esplanade."
