The castle is almost totally ruined but it is situated on an impressive high mountain that offers a beautiful panoramic view where you can take pictures of both mountains and sea.

Well worth a visit for the views alone, a visit to the church is lovely however up a few steps but once there it's pretty idyllic

The castle is easy to reach by car followed by short walk and climb by stone steps. Be aware – some steps are quite slippery. Ruins itself is not something special, but the location on the steep rock gives spectacular views. Those having fear of heights might feel a bit uncomfortable near the edges. There is small working chapel inside... More

Excellent views over the west cost with other islands in the distance. Fairly easy to find and although a bit of a steep walk up to the top it is well worth it for the views.

A little difficult to get to but incredible views, especially at sunset. Old Venetian-era castle on a hill, nice church at the top of the mountain.

Like a lot of monuments this could be improved by better steps etc. The views are good but thought the ground below was a bit dodgy. Also no WC and noticed a man relieving himself at the side of the path which wasn't ideal.

Be careful, the way up is very slippery! I do not suggest wearing flip flops, but the rock formations make for very cool pictures!

We drove from Kalithea (1 hour 45 mins away), crossing the island and driving down the Western coast. The drive was incredible - an amazing coastal road right next to the sea like in the movies, and plenty of places to stop for photo opportunities if you wanted to. As you go away from the coast you find yourself wondering... More
