The ancient town of Corfu with Paleopolis at its heart extended to the Kanoni peninsula and was served by two natural harbours, one on each side. The Alkinoos harbour on the north east side (what is now Garitsa bay)  and Hyllaic to the west. Alkinoos harbour was initially built for military purposes, which is why was fortified and well defended, but eventually became a commercial port, so it was surrounded by both military and commercial installations.

Excavations revealed remains of the ancient naval base, specifically a complex of ship sheds dating to the 5th century BC designed to house and protect the fleet of Corfu. These consist of three parallel rows of pillars. On the north side a long wall was revealed that was part of extensive harbour works.
