Interesting ruins

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.

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
