What a lovely place to visit! It was so nice to see Greece's history, The only negative thing i have to say is regarding young children. There are no railings at all! If you have small children that like to run off then avoid. It's very high and dangerous!

Last week we visited the castle with my partner. It was a pretty great trip, huge heat, but we enjoyed ourselves very well, a lot of beautiful photo was taken. Definitely worth checking out!

Only 3 Euros to enter, and a lot of interesting things to see - very little information available inside - just one information board but it did give a good outline of the structure. Some very considerable drops and very little in the way of safety barriers - didn't bother us, but I'd be reluctant to let small children lose.

Perhaps too many shops selling typical tourist rubbish but quite a lot of decent jewellers and shops selling genuine local goods. Nice atmosphere - lively without being too busy.

a nice day out to visit Greece but tiring journey as it takes about 3 h till you actually begin your journey to Greece and then long waiting on the other site as well .But worth to go if you want to see a different couture .

this is located just a bridge away from the plane tree of Hippocrates in Kos town. if u ask the guy from the reception area about the history of this place, you would learn a lot. but the place could have needed some description on the walls, or at least a brochure that says the history about the place. the...
