The Castle

Well worth a visit but it is a little neglected. Obviously not much money is being spent on these types of things as they are not a priority at the moment.

Castle was great - only 3 euros to get in and plenty to explore. As the walls were accessible then there was ample opportunity to take photos of the harbour and town. I would be wrong not to mention the terrain and dreaded health and safety issues - it would be easy to slip on the stairs and/or walk off... More

The surface for walking is very uneven so trainers or shoes are needed to properly walk around the site.

Really enjoyed the time we spent walking round Kos Castle. So much there to see. It was very hot on the day we went, but you could always find a bit of shade. People with walking problems would have to be careful, because of the cobbled stones in some areas, but well worth seeing.

Relatively well-preserved ruins of a security, the security along the külastada.Saab definitely recommend müüriaart lap after making a different hand, and also to the island of Kos. The ticket price was 3 eur, but it is worth it, who likes to take pictures of the history and various ornaments carved in stone

These ruins of the Castle built by the Knights Templar, during the Crusade period, were a real treat. With only acouple of places not open to the public, due to digs and conservation taking place. Most of the Castle was easy to navigate for the able bodied, though those with disabilities will find this challenging as there is no disabled... More
