You can spend nearly a whole day in this special place of Mirina. The weather was great. We had a view to Mount Athos, Thassos and Imvros from there.

This is a great castle; views, history, danger, even enough info on the boards to bring it to life. Great as an evening walk or something to amuse lively kids. Look out for deer.

The castle is pretty much destroyed but the walk up hill is all worth it because of the wild character of the place and the stunning views over Myrina, the entire island and the Aegean Sea. On a windy day be careful, the wind can...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

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
