Really interesting place to go! Only €2 for adults and students go free! Had a great time exploring this fortress and it was amazing going to the roof and looking at the views! This is a must see in Heraklion!

If you are in Heraklion you must check out this. But be aware that there is a 2,2 km road each way, in the sun with no shade - so bring good walking shoes, sunscreen and water.

It is small, but definetely worth the visit. The entrance is €2,- and children are free. Upstairs on the terrace you have a beautiful view over te sea and harbor. And inside you can see all the canons and read about the history.

Well worth the 2 euro entrance fee just for the atmosphere inside the massive stone walls. Very well presented and a great vantage point across the port

Bring your walking shoes AND water... it's about 2.2km each way... it gets hot in the afternoon with very little shade... so apply sunscreen. There's WC along the way so you are in good company! Nice sea breeze.

It's cheap to go in and has nice views at the top. However, I didn't think there was lots to see and read about.
