So, it's interesting to see the old castle walls but there really isn't much inside. Extremely difficult to find, the streets are a maze. However, amazing panoramic views once you get to the top. Tip: behind the castle area at the bottom of the hill is an elevator that will take you to the top. Easiest way to get there, absolutely worth the 1€.

The Castro (castle) is the second highest peak on Milos island. It is easy to find from Plaka village and it has apx 200 stairs in order to get to the top.
The rewards are great though. Please bear in mind that there is no shop or anything on the top so be prepared. Entrance is free and it is good to go around 5-8pm (depends on when the sunset is) in order to watch the magestic sunset from the top. It is an extremely romantic place and on the middle of the way there is a Greek Church where you can have a stop and still look at the views.
You cannot go to Milos and not see the sunset from Kastro.

*For the extremists...you can also watch an excellent sunrise from there if you can wake up at 5am.

From the castle you can see all around Milos. There is not much info or anything to experience this as a historical sight but I would recommend it for a visit. The place needs more cleaning as visitors seem happy to throw their empty bottles and other trash around..

A place displaced in time. It seems to have stopped in the Middle Ages. There was even a bard inside !!! An exhibition with ancient musical instruments very interesting. The place offers beautiful views and is very well maintained. Free entrance.

Fun hike up to this spot. Make sure you have decent shoes with a grip on sand. Amazing vistas of the town, ocean and Island. A must for photographers

We were staying in Pollonia and visited Plaka & Trypiti during the day.
We walked up to the castle and the view was outstanding.
Can still see in my mind the Greek flag swaying , the white coloured village buildings stretching down the hill and the bright blue sea with a ferry cutting through it.
Perfect!

Great spot in Plaka to watch the sun go down, just expect a lot of others to
Be there with you but that's Greece in the summer.

Venetian style castle, actually under renovation. Great view of Plaka and the bay, from the top. Amazing spot for sunset shots.

Better moment of course to go there during sunset, for the view and the heat. View is great of course but the castle nothing special

If you are in Plaka for the day - dining or shopping, this hike is worth the effort. On the way up, stop at one of the churches and ring the bell; keep climbing all the way to the top. If you want photos, it's probably best to avoid sunset; that's when a hundred or so people will climb up to watch the sun go down. The rest of the day it's pretty uninhabited; a few dwellings on the way up but most of the churches are abandoned. The "Castle", if you'd call it that, is a church at the top of the hill. It was locked the two times we visited, but I would imagine for special occasions like Easter they might open it up.
