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.

As a history buff, it was interesting to wander round a castle that had not been 'done up' for tourists.

This is in a fantastic location although there is not much left of the castle inside to see. Beware if you go with children as safety is not of the highest priority in Greece and there are places which are not fenced off which should be. Definitely worth and visit and look out for the piles of stones both on... More

I literally had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming when vising here. My partner and I hired a quad and drove round the island, as you do lol! We didn't know the castle was coming, the drive was stunning, driving through cloud on a winding road as we were that high up, then we came to what... More

Stunning views, very picturesque. Very busy and a couple of shops at the top where you can buy some touristy trinkets - should you wish. Worth a visit.

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.
