View is worth for trouble! If You visit in Lindos by car, it is not very far away from the main road! Not so much visitors, so it felt like a little adventure. more »
Sam zamek, jak i miejscowość w której się znajduje, leży trochę na uboczu głównego ruchu turystycznego. Są to też pozostałości jednego z większych zamków na wyspie. Ruiny stosunkowo mało uczęszczane, ... more »The castle itself, and in which it is located, is situated a little out of the way of the main tourism. There are also the remains of one of the biggest castles on the island. The ruins of relatively little use, without charge for admission and signboards, and security. Are the shoes for his own safety, the stones are slippery and some rubble ends directly above the cliff. Any inconvenience caused is compensated by a magnificent view on both beaches of Haraki and the town along with the surrounding area. Approach quite steep but not really tiring. Inside the preserved almost exclusively the foundations of buildings, places, collapsed into the basement, the best preserved are the external walls.
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. 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.
Free access at your own risk! No barriers. Adventurous. Not for small children. Outlook is good.
