  • Marked on the map, but forgotten people. Only infrastructure to the village with an excellent beach. On the way into the Bay will sign about the Castle, leave the car and go up a few preserved road. The location is excellent for photos and just impressions. All advise, if we stopped in the area.

  • Don't climb to the ruins because the road is the first trial and we were tired. Charaki Beach view is beautiful!

  • Astonishing views from this ruined templar castle. You can still see some plaster on some of the internal building walls. Very atmospheric and tranquil, well worth the climb.
  • Just EPIC place... It's full of history, just a little walk to climb on the path (there are two path for 2 access) and once on the top the view is astonishing !!! Look for the bunker under the mountain, I added a place for one of the entrance!
  • Real ruins of old castle. A lot of thorny bushes and beautiful views
  • The fortress was originally built in theByzantine era. It was captured by the Knights Hospitaller on 20 September 1306, being their first possession on the island that would become their base. By 1408 it was in ruins, and was repaired under the Grand MastersGiovanni Battista Orsini (1467–76) and Pierre d'Aubusson (1476–1503) as a stronghold to protect the area, and particularly watch over the anchorages at the Charaki and Agia Agathi beaches nearby.[1] After 1470, the Hospitallers abandoned all other fortifications on the island except for Feraklos, nearbyLindos, and the city of Rhodes, which in turn were further strengthened. A decree of 1474 prescribed that the inhabitants of the villages of Malona, Salia, Katagros, Zinodotou, and Kaminari were to find refuge un the Feraklos Castle in case of danger.[1]
  • Free access at your own risk! No barriers. Adventurous. Not for small children. Outlook is good.
