Visited here as part of a trip to Kyrenia. Quite a trek to reach the top and not for those with any kind of mobility issues but absolutely worth it for the fabulous views. My Fitbit recorded the equivalent of 45 flights of stairs to...More

The whole mountain top is the castle! It is amazing! The trip in the north becomes worthwhile even if you only see this castle!

Lots of stairs to climb; and if you want to make it to the very top, make sure you are in good condition. The view is worth the climb.

There are 461 steps to the top third level but easy to quit at level one or two, Cafe's at both stops. You can see 7th Century Castle, Kitchen and many other areas of interest.

St Hilarions Castle is a good climb- there is hand rails all the way. It isn't as bad as it looks .I did it in walking shoes but saw others in sandals .The view from the top is fantastic.

Perched on top of a mountain, this ruin of a castle is not for the faint hearted. Over 400 steps to get to the very top with (I'm told) limited hand rails and even steps. I only managed to get halfway.

Walt Disney based his renowned cartoon film, 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' on St Hilarion's Castle location as he was so inspired by the place. St Hilarion was also known as 'Dieu D'Armour (belonging to a saint). In olden times it was known as...More
