bit of a disappointment, as there is no longer a 'Castle' to see- BUT considering this castle was built in the 1200's, I guess that's to be expected. The architecture is very unique because it was believed to be built using a variety of available materials available at that time. Well worth seeing on a trip to Paros, and it doesn't take long because you can't go in.

It is just the partial remains of what was once a fortress, but go to see the unique construction method. It appears the builders used sections of columns to form the solid walls.

Along the way, enjoy the narrow, twisting streets and interesting shops that you will find in the area.

The Frankish Kastro – Castle is the part of the historic ancient city built on the remains of a temple to Athena. Do not imagine classical castle. It is more ruins surrounded by narrow streets. The walls have strange or interesting structure. I like this area, it is in the city but still far away from hustle and bustle. Narrow streets where local people live. That is great, It is not just “museum” but real life happens here.

Well worth a walk to when you're in town. It's easy to get to and is very different. Can't go inside but the outside is worth a photo.

We found the castle with the help of very good signage. Not much to see there however. I wish there was more history explained on the sign. Worth the search.

Without meaning to sound ungrateful this was a bit of an anti-climax for us. We made our way up from the port and expected to see more than what is effectively just one wall.

The plaque explaining the history was interesting and you do understand why it is in the state it is after so much time and history has gone by.

Worth doing but don’t go to town specially for this.

Interesting castle built from remnants of pillars of defunct temples at the time. Nice view of the island and sea from around the corner which also has some nice photo ops of a small church.

Don't expect "a castle", expect the city with narrow charming streets used to be part of a castle.
It is astonishing, walk there around, find tiny details (e.g. walls, which are part of homes now), and enjoy!
