But the buildings here are really ruins (except the Agia Sophia Monastery).
This is unlike Palamidi fortress in Nafplio, where the buildings are intact.
Even so, the climb up the hill from the lower town is not too arduous (don't know about summer, though) and the views are magnificent.
Since the top of the mountain is covered with tall grass/flowers in spring, you should be careful when you walk among the ruins, s there might be snakes around (actually there was one snake, which was run over by a car in the road from Gefyra to Velies).
