Like Kritinia's there is not much left of the actual Castle but the views are well worth the effort and again the steps up would be a challenge to some (me included) but it has a lovely little chapel if you want/need to reflect. Did I say the views are impressive ? Little cafe/bar in the carpark is an added... More

Breath-taking views, overlooking the sea with history and nature. The sunsets are just unbeatable from the top!

Really glad we made the effort to visit Monolithos. The castle is however very ruined and what remains is perched rather precariously on top of the cliff, so I would not say that it was safe for young children and you have to be quite fit and sure footed to climb up the steps and move around the site once...

We visited in October. Very windy up on the hill. Did NOT go to the actual castle or chapel due to the weather.

We were exploring in the car and spied Monolithos Castle. If you like ruins with views then it is worth a small climb. There were lots of stacks of stones but I never did find out what they represent.

Amazing to think of this as a castle fortress in the past. Great views along the coast but wear good trainers/footwear. We saw a number of people with flipflops who were not enjoying the walk! More information about the church and castle should be provided.

you can really hurt yourself if you are not wearing appropriate footwear. The climb is steep and the uneven stone steps treacherous. My knees got a serious workout. Despite all absence of 'elf and safety regs, the climb was well worth it. The views are spectacular and furthermore all for free! A few info points would have been useful.

Done the tourist route up to the Castle. Road up was not the best as the condition was of poor quality. Castle was worth a visit though.
