  • To be medieval ruins, they are very reconstructed. The frescoes in one of the churches are spectacular. They recommend the view from the Castle, but did not seem at least to us anything exceptional, equal is that there were 35 ° and that the temperature is not better to climb up to the Castle.

  • Simply one of the world's best Byzantine fortress towns. Sadly in ruins. However, an active monestary is still here. A must visit place if your into Byzantine history, archeology, or military history
  • Very beautiful and interesting to visit historical place. But be prepared for hours of walking through steep, narrow paths. There are around 2 km between the lower parking and the top building and 500 m from the upper parking. Still it is worth visiting.
  • We only stopped by for half an hour or so, but the site was very interesting!
  • Amazing, we came in through the door from down and went up all way up! (With flip-flops) really nice place
  • A wonderful Byzantine site that has churches, mansions, museum, roads, vistas. Highly recommended.
