The castle itself is in ruins and quite dangerous as there is no fences or protection but the site is beautifu and peaceful. There were very little tourists visiting. I would recomment going late afternoon to enjoy the Sunset. The view is BREATHTAKING!

The steps to the castle were a bit of a climb but nothing too problematic. As you ascend to the castle, you see piles of stones - I kidded my daughter that they were magnetic. The views from the castle are fantastic and well worth the climb - recommended

What an unusual place. A lump of rock sticking up with the remains of a castle and a newer chapel built inside it. Walk past the stacks of stones on the way up (bizarre) and hold onto small children at the top. All to easy for them to run through that welcoming stone doorway straight ahead that leads to....an enormous... More

We visited here in our hired jeep- the drive was fun through the mountains from Rhodes town. The cafe is in a lovely spot, very friendly and good food - well worth stopping at. Take time to soak up the atmosphere at the castle and don't miss going round the side for some of the best views.

Interesting place, but not much information provided on it there- pretty much went, walked around, and left. Still nice views from the top, so see it if you're in the area.

one of your top 5 places to visit whilst in rhodes, the views are stunning, there are a few steps to the top so not for the faint hearted, the treck to the top is so worth the effort, make sure you have plenty of water, oh and your camera

Well worth a visit if you are on the island, easy to get to in a car. Spectacular views of the coast line on approach, there is a a good few steps up to the castle but the castle is very nice from the approach and also when you are inside. There is no fee to enter the castle

There are lots of castles in Rhodes, all worth a visit, but if you have to choose this is probably the one not to miss. The views from the top are breathtaking. While you are here be sure to check out Fourni beach ( pebbles, a little surf and windy when we visited, but clear water and thankfully no umbrellas... More

It's a nice ruin, but mostly for 1 picture of it than a whole visit. Castle is quite small and in bad shape. The view is very nice, as usual on Rhode island. But we travelled a 2 hours ride to go there... and maybe it was not Worth that much.
