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

It's free so that's a bonus, a very windy road to get to it. Quite a nice scene with the castle on the hill but it is in ruins, good for a viewpoint.

A similiar castle to monolithos so probaly not worth doing if you have already done monolithos. A diffrent looking castle to monolithos it looks more like the holy land crusader castles . Not much to see inside but good panoramic views of the agean. Be careful at edges no barriers and a large drop Very good cafe with nice guy... More

We visited the castle on the way back from Monolithos becuase it looked stunning from afar. When we got there it was clear to see that the castle had been lacking in attention, as the modern path up to the castle entrance had not been maintained and there was an abandoned hut in the grounds which looked like it had...

These ancient Greeks certainly knew where to site their castles in the most magnificently picturesque spots.It sure is a lovely spot,but make sure you've got decent sturdy footwear on as it's a tricky clamber-up,and you need to be sure-footed.Some years back on a previous visit here,my son tripped&quite badly gashed his knee-and since lost his enthusiasm for looking at scenic...

Kritina Castle is a ruined castle on the west coast of Rhodes (if you have the map from Marathon car rentals, then it's listed as Kastellos). When we went entry was free although there looks to have been attempted to put in a pay kiosk at some time, whether this has now been abandoned or was simply not in use... More

One of the must see castles in the Rhodes island. The castle is a little abandoned, but you can feel the history, the ancient life in it. The view from the castle is gorgeous, the rocks, the sea view and some small islands.

With Lindos on the east side of Rhodes, the west side gets little attention. After we finished our tour of the west side, we even heard a tourist agency person tell a visitor from Russia that, on the west side, there some small villages but that's about all! Kritinia Castle was one of our special stops when we were on... More

Its another crusader castle on a crag but well worth a visit. Great views and a great place to stop off for 1/2 hr. Well worth including on an itinerary.
