  • Being in the north-western part of the Peloponnese, I encourage you to watch the beautiful castle of Chlemoutsi. For me, the fact that almost all round trips do not have in your program this monument in – it's such a paradox. The fact is that the road to the fortress is sometimes hard to take even a small passenger cars (very narrow and winding) but no such way the Greek driver coaches defeat. The nearest larger town is portowo-Kyllini ferry (Killini), but you might want to rent a car and see the Chlemoutsi fortress without a guide...... (tickets are valid-a few euros)-a unique monument of architecture frankońsko-Byzantine and seat Crusaders. The Castle began to spring up around the year 1220 and has colourful, exciting story. In his time passed through the hands of the Franks, Catalans again reigned there, Franks, Turks and Venetians ... and again ... The Turks ... Practically the best preserved Castle of the Franks in the Peloponnese and from the Hill on which stands, offering great views of the Ionian Sea, the island of Zakynthos and Kefalonię in the distance. At the foot of the Citadel overlooks the olive groves, the sea and the sleepy town ... due to the small tourist traffic hard here at cafes or restaurants. As usual it is ... for some it will be probably adventure, while others will say that it's just a pile of stones.  . Recommend beat a few miles and see the beach and Kalamia. Getaway on a private trip I planned the hotel Aldemar Olympian Village to the fortress Chlemanoutsi to 5 godzin...na ease between breakfast and lunch to be packed some ... with filling up cars and coffee along the way. I recommend!

  • We took our boys, 9 and 11, to visit this castle. It was worth wearing sneakers or sturdy sandals. They enjoyed the view and climbing around, although not too strenuous. Exterior parts have little if ...  more »

  • Unfortunately we visited on a Monday and the castle was closed. We enjoyed a walk around the perimeter and the views of the surrounding village tho.
  • Well worth visiting, for the history and the amazing views.
  • Best village on earth
