Great visit with friends! You can see all the city, the gulf and the sea. You can relax there and feel like an ancient observer!

Approached from the mainland side up steps through pines. Well preserved castle with an interesting & well presented museum of Greek and ottoman artefacts. Spend an hour here happily browsing; then wander down to the unrelated but proximal cafe bar just below.
