A visit to the castle this September was a highlight of our holiday. Views were amazing. It was really interesting, very windy on the day we went. Had lunch at the Kastro which is always great. Especially the cheesecake. Flat shoes or trainers recommended.

Survived the earthquake. Free entry and a couple of hours wandering around. The restaurant just before the castle is also worth a visit. Family run and good food at reasonable prices

We all enjoyed our wander around the castle enjoying the visual history and the panarma all around. All that is needed is some information on its history.

We used this as a respite from the midday sun. We took a packed lunch and had it in the shade of the castle. The castle doesn't take long to walk round, it's worth a wander round with great views from the top. As many...More
