  • There is little to be seen from the remains of the Castle, but for unforgettable views! When entering from the Center we recommend a great new Tavern and bar.

  • the ruins themselves is almost gone, but what a lovely view of the surrounding countryside and the village itself, for this kind of worth the climb

  • Doesn't look like a placed being well taken care of, at least based on close surroundings. It's a shame it's not open for the most of the day and not being opened during weekend and Monday at all :/
  • It is quite a walk up from Zante, very steep roads. So if it's sunny, prepare for a lot of sweating :-)
  • The wrost place in zante only view from above and nothing else
  • It's the worst ruins I have seen! Totally piece of crap! 3€ for a walk in the woods. Don't go!
  • Several destroyed buildings and quite of walking inside. There are trees so shade makes it much easier to wander.
