Beautiful castle with great views at a very reasonable 2E each entry fee. It closes at 3pm and perhaps it is because we arrived at 2pm that the Byzantine church and museum in the castle was closed, or maybe it is only later in the...More

The castle is built on a very nice place. Really big, with lots of remains. The view is outstanding. Really deserves a visit.

A marvellous place to have drinks and watch the sunset! It has a lot of coffee houses around for all kinds of tastes and if you're into walking make sure to get through the stone gate and go to the hidden beach behind!
