  • I liked it here. Hats off to the builders because this is one heck if a construction and I bet there weren't any hardworking Polish builders around a thousand and a half years ago. Worth a visit definitely especially if you are interested in the history of the place and the walk up isn't too bad, steep but just take it steady
  • A must see in the west of Corfu. One of our most fascinating experiences during our holidays. Amazing view from up there!
  • There is a notice on the back side of the "ticket-office"(?) building that this "archeological site is closed", though nothing else prevents groups of tourists to enter the castle. Up inside you'll find a short information stand with a map of the fortress and its history, hard and chipped, but passable stone ladders and marvellous views 360 degrees wide. There's a nice tavern near the parking downside as well and some local souvenir workshops.
  • After a short but incredible high hill you will get the most beautiful view what actually you can't imagine until you see it. Amazing. This is absolutely a must see!
  • Important and unique byzantine castle, located in a breathtaking location. Follow the road to Paleokastritsa and head to Lakones village to enjoy the view of the area. Stop at the castle and climb to the top. Amazing place.

Where to stay in Paleokastritsa

Lavish hotels draw well-heeled travelers to Paleokastritsa, but this busy resort town also offers plenty of affordable lodgings for budget-conscious visitors. The town's small inns provide access to outdoor pools, free Wi-Fi, and complimentary parking at a fraction of the price charged by the area's big hotels. You can also visit Paleokastritsa's beaches from a comfortable base in nearby Corfu Town, which boasts a greater variety of good-value hostels and low-cost apartments.
