It was 3 euros per adult to get into the castle, but it was worth the small price because it is beautiful to look around, especially if you are a history buff! There are public toilets inside too which were clean!

As a lover of all things historical I found this to be one of the highlights of my visit to Kos. There are better preserved castles around the Aegean and the Med (Bodrum and Kyrenia spring to mind), however, there is something special about this one.

Great views and can get very warm because it's enclosed, the castle covers a very large area, well worth the money 3 euros per adult.

I really enjoyed my visit to Kos castle. 3 Euro to enter and it is worth every cent. It will take you a couple of hours to fully explore it. Try and avoid the midday sun and take drinks in with you. There is nowhere to buy anything once you are in there. Some great views of the sea and... More

Very lovely to see but when we got closer there were refugees all over the place. The kids got scred and we didn't get to see the inside

Very interesting place to see, you can go around by yourself, take care some of the steps are a bit uneven. Look in the grass - there are tortoises of all sizes wandering around, the kids loved them.
