Lovely views of the coast well worth the climb, there are steps but the are uneven and slippery. Remember to wear strong sensible footwear.

It was built 1480 by the Knights of Saint John. Never got conquered. But to walk up is a challenge if you have leg issues. And the old stepping stones are easy to slide on if you don't have the right shoes.

Bracing vertical climb up. Tiny church beautiful from the outside. Uninspiring inside. Apparently it’s built on the ruins of a Castle but like everything else on the island there’s no information at the site. Gorgeous view though.

Driving around the island was OK but the beaches were not as nice in the west as they are on the east coast. Monolithos Caste for its location as well as for its view is worth driving to this part of Rhodes. Pretty impressive!

This ruined castle has a small church inside its wall and is very pretty in the Aegean sunlight. The steep steeped climb is worth the views from the top. They are across the Aegean coastline with beautiful blue seas.

Pictures we took are amazing! We were here for a long time because the view was fantastic. Entrance is for free. Near the castle was a cafe where we had good lunch.

We walked from Monolithos village around to the castle, although you can drive to the foot of the rock that the castle sits on. It was worth walking there as we were able to see the castle from a distance whilst stretching our legs. The...More

We visited this place with a one year old baby. It was nice to spend a half-hour there and to take pictures. Parking is close to the castle, but there are only stairway leading to the top, so no wheels could be used to get...More

It's the only medieval castle which has not been occupied as far as I read. What remains is pretty much ruins - the outer walls and there's also a small church / chapel inside. You have to be careful while climbing up because the stone...More

I’d say carrier. Steps are uneven and very worn hence slippery. They wind quite a bit too so that would add to the stroller problems. Wear sensible shoes so that you are as sure footed as possible if carrying your little... More
