An old ruin at the top of a hill with amazing views over the countryside and sea. Not too hard a walk up but health and safety would have had nightmares!! Worth a visit in conjunction with Fourni beach.

There is parking at the castle and a lovely little restaurant selling food and drinks. While the castle is free to visit the down side is there is no information about its layout or its history. It’s a short walk up a gravel path with a lot of steps. But it’s all worth it for the views from the castle out over the sea which are beautiful. There is a reasonable amount of stone work left and a small church, But mainly it’s just a place to wander around and take in the views.

Sunday 25th October this was our second attempt to visit the ancient Castle of Monolithos. The first occasion was on Friday 23rd, we were not allow to enter and we stopped from getting there as the place was being used in the filming of a movie. Thankfully we were successful on our return visit. We climbed the well worn stone steps, was going to count them but kept getting distracted by the wonderful scenery and the size of the Castle. There is no admission fee to enter the Castle. Would definitely recommend wearing sturdy footwear here, the steps are a bit uneven as is  the inside of the Castle. Once at the top visitors are treated to some incredible views of the surrounding area and along the coastline. Visitors are also able to visit the small but beautiful Church of Saint Panteleimon. There is the ruins of another old Church nearby. A walk around the parapets/battlements is an ideal way to enjoy the views.

From the road looking over to the church perched on top of the cliff, looks like a scene from “Mamma Mia” it’s simply stunning. There is a small free car park at the base of the steps climbing up to the church and castle ruins, which are free to enter. The steps are slippery, so wear sensible shoes but it’s not a difficult climb. The church is open and you can light a candle for a small donation. The views from the castle ruins are spectacular. There’s a little cafe at the base of the car park with toilets for clients.

We were staying in Lindos and drove here on a day trip. It was worth it since there are a number of interesting things to see on the way and you get to see this lovely setting for the castle, or what’s left of it. Tip - stop before you wind down to the free car parking area to get some good photos from above. Access to the castle is reasonably painless and free.
