  • Returning from Parsonisi, decided to enter the fortress of Asclepion, which is located in the village on the left side of the road, if you go to the North. The village is known since the 7 century BC, because it was the Temple of God healing Asclepius (Aesculapius), which he himself had built. We enjoyed the card with me, "which got the tablet. The road goes uphill to the fortress, part of a road paved, and closer to the fortress-primer. Near the fortress there is a small playground, where you can park your car. Free entrance to the fortress. The fortress is situated on a hill with a height of 250 m, was built in the second half of XV century. (over the gate of the fortress stands date 1473) to protect the southern part of the island. The strategic location of the fortress of the Knights of the order of St John allowed to keep under the control of a large part of the South-East of the island. The fortress is rectangular (almost square) structure with rounded edges and towers, which almost did not survive to our days. In medieval staircase takes you to the well-preserved Tower and go inside. Under the second tier of the fortress is a network of catacombs, which are believed to lead to the village; According to him, local residents can safely hide from pirate raids in the fortress. With the fortress offer magnificent views of the sea and surrounding countryside village. Despite the fact that no reconstruction works, reconstructions and restorations in the fortress was not, we really enjoyed this introduction with landmark.

  • When you planned a trip to the auto-read, missed and did not intend to. Hit almost accidentally-on the way back from the monastery of St. Michael the Archangel. Maybe that's why. from the unexpected-such a delight. Twilight at the bottom turn white village, away-the sea. Anybody people. Oh and no new building, which, unfortunately, quite obtrusively appears on some of the walls of the castle in Kritinii. Advise everyone to visit-will not, in all its coverage beauties and attractions. (maybe someone enough and one castle on Rhodes see-as in a joke about a policeman, who "already have a book", and therefore we must give something else),

  • The fortress is in terrible disrepair, not sure if there even is safe to visit. Breakages are no fenced, so children need to keep per hand. The rise of the car is very cool, when it moved in, had doubts about whether it was worth doing it. The only plus fortress-good views. Otherwise it is better to go to Monolithos, will be much more impressions. Asklepios in the village also has a lovely old church was built in 1060, but in it the coolant-Yu hit failed, TC in 6 pm she was already closed.
