  • you know, the Castle has a million of them in the US or something at work so this is less of a stretch in my opinion:)

  • Castle with a long history, which is given briefly in the entrance. Also lists information and upon entering, and while browsing at different points. The color of the stones are dark grey, like everything in the area. Whopping stands on top of very picturesque homonym city. The view from there great. The sunsets magical. And think what the long-suffering has passed this place!

  • Great views and very interesting castle. There was some information but not enough to match the history of the castle. Worth a visit.
  • Went there for a concert at night. Really good atmosphere, great lighting and seating available. Definitely recommend seeing something here.
  • So much rich history and what an amazing structure. If you are in lesvos the castle and Molivos are were you must go and see, its one of a kind.
  • Great view, lots of events during the summer...
  • Closed due to repairs, but a walk around the castle provides view of the stunning surroundings.
