Ruins of an old fort. No entrance fees; no information provided on site. Some nice views of the surrounding area from inside the fort. There is an old olive tree by the entrance that was planted when the fort was built 800 years ago.

This Byzantine 13th century castle is only likely to be encountered by the deliberate visitor and those on the way to Lake Korrission (the spellings vary). It is situated right on the road so cannot be missed. Some guidebooks say that it cannot be entered...More

If you are looking for a quick walk inside ruins of the ancient castle - go for it. It will take about 10-15 minutes. Having good imagination you can try to recreate how the building used to look alike. Unfortunately there is no explanation or...More
