Great place to visit.. It's a bit of hard work climbing all the steps .. But well worth the climb for the beautiful views and to see the church in the ruins

If you're anywhere near monolithos or Diana, it is well worth taking a 5 minutes drive up to the castle. Even if you don't actually go into the castle the views from the cliffs are stunning. Some fabulous photo opportunities are to be had here.

Interesting - lots of steps and small chapel at the top but fantastic views. Wear trainers as very uneven under foot. Will only take half an hour but well worth it

We only had time for a quick visit to see this castle overlooking the sea. From the coastal road you can enter from one way and come out the other way so it isn't out of your way at all. You can walk around the castle and feel like you were part of an old storybook.

There is nothing inside the castle other than a small chapel. The best view of the castle is from the approach road. There is a free parking spot with great views and a man selling his own honey (a perfect gift to take home).

Access is Free and is via a winding stone staircase. At the top is very rocky, and where some of the battlements are broken down you could just step off the cliff so take care with children. Don't let them run ahead of you! Beautiful views and lovely little white church too. Definitely visit if you are in the area

This was awesome ruins to see! Stunning views, a small church built within the walls. Careful with small children, the drunkards, & selfie daredevils as the holes in the walls are not protected & someone could fall down the steep slopes.

Picked this from the guide book as we were passing. Steep climb to the castle on the hill top. Great views and a little church on the top. Very strange though is the piles of stones left by visitors. I asked the guide why these were here and he had no explanation other than to say that everyone does it.... More
