Loved visiting this castle! Great to walk around and cute little museums. Closed on Mondays, but otherwise open. Get your Muze card before going to all these museums and castles!

The castle is easy to get to, especially if you are taking the ferry to/from Chios. There are great views from the top, and interesting displays. Not crowded and well worth an hour of your time.

Walking the ramparts was very worthwhile with great views of the town and marina. Interesting museum in the castle giving background information on Catherine the Great of Russia and how the Russian fleet defeated the Turkish fleet in the battle of Cesme
