I love exploring around castle's, ancient site's, but was quite shocked at the way it was kept. Isn't there anyone with a strimmer, lawn mower or anyone that cares? A place of interest or history like that in this country would be wrapped up in cotton wool and be shown off in the best way possible, instead it's been taken... More

For the price you pay it's well worth a visit. The castle is huge and you are free to roam around. Fantastic views

Great historical site with lots of information about the history. Was a nice walk around and your feet ache because the castle is so big.

We thought we'd pop to the castle to have a look and there's loads to see and the views are stunning!! Even the entrance is pretty and impressive. If you go to the under ground parts make sure you have a torch on your phone or something.... You will end up in a puddle!

The castle is easy to find and in the middle of the sea port area. The grounds are well kept, and you can walk around 90% of the castle. It has a lot of pieces of statues and columns as well as areas you can look out over the water. Great excursion without having to go far!

We entered via the wooden gate on the bridge over the road, it cost 3e each but was worthwhile , the views across to Turkey were lovely. It could do with some signs to guide to the exit as it isn't very clear and the steps are loose in places. We did enjoy the visit. Toilets were dreadful, wouldn't want... More

I walked and waded all the way around the castle, TWICE, trying to find the entrance, only because I could SEE PEOPLE INSIDE. It was raining so hard, nobody was around to ask, so I gave up on the hidden entrance.

This is really worth the visit; a castle within a castle dating back to the Knights of St John of Jerusalem. There walls are extremely thick because middle-ages vandals used the stone from ancient Roman and Greek sites. Can walk all round the perimeter.
