Integral part of Molivos' charm

If you have the time, definitely worth the climb up there and the €2 entrance fee. Well conserved, informative little indoor exhibitionism, great views.

As an Izmirian, it was great to look at the Aegean Sea from this side. Down the street, the shops and the ambiance were very nice.

Molivos is a small but very lovely town. There are very few places and cAstle is one of them. You can visit every month of the year. But if you are visiting in december, you should get windstopper clothes. Because its very very windy. But castle is highly recommend beacuse of its view and history .. Cheers Ernur
