  • Definitely worth to visit. Preferably take the main track and do not go through the narrow streets because the rise is the largest. Once above you have a magnificent view of Molyvos, the surroundings and the harbour. You can return through the narrow streets with shops and restaurants. Preferably visit the castle in the early morning to avoid the warmth when climbing

  • In the afternoon the castle was closed. But you can take a walk around the castle. Here are benches from where you have a beautiful view. In front of the castle there is a large terrace to go for a drink or a bite to eat. From here you can enjoy the beautiful sunset.

  • You have a great view from the top and it's completely quiet. So take some time to sit under the old trees on a bench and enjoy the view. The entrance fee was only 2 euros which is not much for such a view. But there isn't much to explore except for some nice signs with the history of the castle on them
  • Beautiful views. Lovely old castle with plenty of history boards. €2 entry so not expensive entry. There is a cafe but that was crowded with tourists so didn’t try it.
