There are also live music events... More

Walk around the little streets surrounding the Kastro. Go here in the evening to visit a concert at the museum or the museum itself. If you want to get away from the busy area around the port, the Kastro is the perfect place to be. Beautiful by day and night.

I took a glimpse of one review, before starting mine, about this "not being worth the visit". This is the thing I don't understand - it's there, few hundred meters from you, you are there, your hotels are near, beaches... it's right there, and it's problem to walk those 200 hundred meters? :) The castle is beautiful, the stairs, rocks,...

Attended two very nice concerts on the terrace. Recommend bringing a warm jacket for evening (outdoor) performances.

Loved this excursion to the Kastro with a local guide who painted the place alive with history. The views aren't bad either.

Part of the charm of the Kastro is that it is a labyrinthine mix of houses, shops and restaurants topped by the remains of a castle. Without the aid of Ariadne and her ball of string its is easy to either get lost or forget where you’ve been. Maps and directions are poor, which adds to the excitement. We visited... More

Nothing special. A few winding streets with average views. Not worth a special trip in our opinion. ................
