creapy old castle.

A very neat castle, up high on the hilltop, with excellent views of the surrounding area. I wish there had been an informational brochure or something, but the fact that it was... read more

A very neat castle, up high on the hilltop, with excellent views of the surrounding area. I wish there had been an informational brochure or something, but the fact that it was free to enter was nice. If you're doing the west coast west coast castle tour, this will be the first one that you see along the windy west... More

You don't get to see much of the castle but the views are great. Shame there's not much information there about the place - you need to take your own guidebook. The cafe is brilliant - amazing value, lovely location and spotless loos!

Having a hire car, we thought we would pay another visit to this castle ruins having been many years before, I can now say that it was not such a good idea, the climbing and walking underfoot are not really worth it, although the views from up here are very good. If you have any mobility or walking difficulties then... More

Use the free car park and look at the castle. (Note: two old ladies may try to charge you, but parking and access is free). The castle dominates the landscape and protected the Island from the Saracens and pirates. There is nothing to see inside the castle, and the view is just as good from the car park. Take time...

We visited the castle on our recent holiday to Rhodes and were amazed at the fantastic views from the top of the castle, it's a steep climb from the car park on very secure steps but it's worth the effort. Although the castle is a ruin it's still in good condition and with free admission it's well worth the slight... More

Another FREE attraction. Access via a well laid path with some steps & a staircase at the top. Really well preserved, and you can get right down inside the courtyard. Stunning views too

This place was so magnificent, that I did not want to leave. Every angle had a different, yet outstanding view. Being here was one of my most emotional experiences of my trip to Rhodes. And it was where I was able to take the most beautiful photographs I have ever taken. Loved it!!!

There are 2 very similar castles built by the Knights of St John in Rhodes, Monolithos Castle and Kritinia. There are others but I am comparing these 2 as they are both in very similar states of ruination, style and location. It's difficult to decide which is best to visit, and once you have seen one, the other is not... More
