We went to Monolithos castle with our friends. It was easy to find this because it's lonely rock which we saw from the road. It's also easy to get it as well. This is another place with stunning views on Rhodes island

Ancient and run down castle on top of a hill..Pleasant and very easy walk to the top of the castle... Views are exceptional..Small church within the structure... Cafe at the base of the castle was very inexpensive although it was 50 cents to use the loo....

Very close to the village of Monolithos, there are the ruins of an old castle, yet with great history, having successfully resisted 2 consequent Ottoman sieges during the 15th and 16th century P.C. The view from up there is breath-taking, mainly at sunset, which is equally charming from the nearby beach of Kalamos, on the west coast of Rhodes.

Sensible shoes are definitely required! Also be cautious as there are no railings and a sheer drop ;-) Really enjoyed exploring this small but historical site and would suggest that you add it to your list. Not suitable for young children or the infirm.

What a place for a castle! Not to be missed on a trip to Rhodes. The climb up to this fortress built on top of a rock is worth the effort as the views from the top are stunning. The old church on the top is small but worth popping your head into.

Bit of a rocky climb up, so if you re bad on your legs take care. The stunning views from the top are worth it. I loved the little Church of st panteileimon at the top built in the 1400s and still in perfect condition

Visiting Rhodos you must see Monolithos castle. On the top of the cliff situated castle with nice temple is perfect destination. Climbing to the mountain is very attractive and the view from the top is fabulous.
