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

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.

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...
