  • Much nicer to the ascent to foot (otherwise taxi for €5) we cross paths in pavement and arrive at the foot of the great clock and its bell tower. Then we continue on the road to finally reach the Castle. (No shadow on the road) Predict Cap/hat, water bottle, good shoes and especially the camera! The visit to the castle is fast (admission € 2) open from 8: 00 until 15: 00. The view is beautiful! To do!

  • Interesting place to visit. Excellent view and a very good place to walk or ride a bicycle, there si also a nice bicycle track.
  • The place has unbelievable view and is a must see while in Nafpaktos, yet I think that it should be open to public later than 15.00 certainly during the summertime...
  • Looks like work in progress right now, don't expect much, except than wrecked castle walls and paths for walking.
  • Nice 13th century byzantine-venetian castle. The walls are in relativly good condition. There are some buildings and a church restored (but were locked on our visit). The view is great and its a great walk. (2€ ticket)
  • Nice place made by the Venetians
