This old fortress in Kythira Town is absolutely worth a visit. I would also recommend walking down the path from outside the fortress to the little town of Kapsali (by the sea). The first meters are very step, but afterwards it's a pretty easy hike....More

Very well preserved castle with excellent view. Do not miss the small churches inside and right outside the castle (Mesa & Exo Vourgou) if they're open.
