“Great sceanic site”

Castello del Molo (Koules)
Ranked #6 of 84 things to do in Heraklion
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 10, 2014

This old castle fortress is beautifully situated on the port with water all around. Unfortunately it is undergoing restoration work and you cannot currently tour the inside. A walk along the breakwater is worth while however to view all sides and appreciate the beauty of the port and sea around you.

It was relaxing walking towards the fort. The breath taking view and watching how e fishermen seated I. Their boats knit their fishing nets and remove e catch of the day was beautiful. Looked like a movie.... The color contrast was also amazing. The sunset was amazing as well. I was speechless and felt like just staring into the world beyond. A few artists displayed their beautiful art for sale.

Took an excellent stroll around the bastion at night, along the jetty, for 20 mins or so before turning back. Spectacular with the city lights reflecting in the water.

Went there after getting off the bus and an obvious first stop and it's fair to say it is impressive as is the harbour wall itself but it was fenced off we we were there and looked like it had been for a while - there was no information on it nearby that I could see which was a shame

I assumed wrongly that when I visited that a) I could get inside and b) it would be interesting outside. Unfortunately it failed on both counts; it is an old slightly crumbling square fort and that really is it; it is picturesque though.
