It takes about an hour to complete the tour up to the top and down to the secondary gate it is worth for the clear signboard and legends about history of the manufact and all the main buildings. At the bottom of the rock just...More

Fabulous views A wonderful maze of ruins and so interesting. There are two ways up, the main route and the side entrance reached from a path running up from 'Romeo' Taverna. A very large area to cover and paths not always easy.

Let's put it this way: if you stayed in Myrina for just a few hours and you had time to visit just one or two things, the castle is a hands-down must. The views are stunning (particularly at sunset), and there are quite a few...More

Lovely walk up, the 360 degree views are wonderful. Great in the evening for the sunset. There is also a lovely bar half way down back towards the town.

Apart from the walls facing the town there is not a lot more left of the castle. But the view is grand. And it is amusing to look at the goats that fearless climb the rocks. And if you are lucky you might come across...More

Really interesting ruin to potter around with few others the twice we visited. It's an enormous site and there is loads to investigate with few areas that are restricted. The information boards are somewhat limited and we would happily have paid for a guidebook. No...More

Was looking forward to visiting the Kastro. It does have some amazing views of the area once you've tackled the climb up the hill, it is certainly worth the effort. Unfortunately the venue has been left to ruin which is a real shame I would...More

This castle is in the port of Myrina. It overseas all of Myrina. The views are spectacular and it looks awesome at night. To get to it is a nice walk uphill. Would definitely recommend if anyone is visiting Limnos.

It's a long hard walk in the heat so may be a struggle... they've improved the way up enormously with the new path but it may still be too much. You could try and if it gets too much there are seats halfway up to rest for a... More
