  • It is already amazed what the Venetians once all have installed. Antique column drums and other antique components were used. You used it everything was already there and easy to handle. A photo and then it is good. Going further to the right and get to linger "Sundowner square" on the Hill of Kastro district at a church and with beautiful tavernas.

  • Breath taking view. Romantic sunsets. Don't miss it.
  • nice view. great places for a drink nearby
  • Great sunset views
  • The walls are quite interesting structured and the location within the narrow streets is kinda nice. However it is yet another castle and there are others with a greater view or location then this. If you are passing by, have a look. But nothing you should plan to visit.
  • Don't go expecting a full castle. This is the ruins of one which have since been surrounded by more modern buildings, though there is a poetic justice that the castle which was built from Athenian temples was then used to build houses. I do like the idea of a Medieval castle hidden in the streets with little sections of it visible - a cornerstone here and stairway there, but Paros should make more of it. Giving this site 5 stars is silly in a country that contains the Acropolis and that's coming from a history buff.
