Stunning views. Very little shade, but worth it. Lots of climbing....take a trekking pole...or maybe even two

What a view. What a work out to get there - but not impossible. This is a breath taking castle and not to be missed. Everything the guide books say is true.

Spectacular views - so high up with views to the west and east and south. Not to be missed. Amazing atmosphere which we had all to ourselves - lucky us.

Well worth visiting for the views alone. Climbing to the top at 792 m is ok but not in the heat of the day. Some of the steps are small and worn but quite safe if you're careful.

You really need to have a good stomach for the heights, but it is really worth the trip. It gets very busy and very hot, so go early and take plenty of water with you.

You need to be fit as there are a lot of steps, but the views are magnificent. This castle is illuminated at night and can be seen from all around Kyrenia.
