“Amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

These ruins provides an excellent 360 degree view of the bay and of Oia. It took me a couple tries to find my way out there. Go early because it typically crowded, ESPECIALLY during sunset!

“Beautiful place and amazing sights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

Went there on a windy day. A lot of people taking pictures and for a good reason. The views are breathtakingly beautiful. You can see most of Oia. Just go and see, then you will believe.

“Sunsets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Best spot for sunsets. Make your way down to the castle as the sun sets with a bottle of wine, glasses and your camera. Best spot on the island to see the sun disappear and the sky light up!

“Go when it is dark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

The views here at anytime are amazing but at sunset it is crazy crowed. We liked it best at night when it was dark. The view of the town of Oia with all the lights is so beautiful!
