Very interesting castle and cheap entry (2 euros per adult and kids are free). The views up and down the coast and towards Mount Olympus are fantastic. Lovely walk from Platamonas along the old railway line but it is quite steep towards the end and...More

It is a steep walk up to the castle, but there is a mini tourist train that you can get if you go early evening. It is well set out with an organised route around the castle and good information.

Great view from here, great for walkers.. wear sensible shoes and do it later or early in the day as it’s very hot in July/ August ! Great place to visit ❤️

Always a pleasure to visit the castle and beaches nearby. The water is crystal clear and service of local vendors on point.

Loved this castle due to the amazing views and the many trees and shade within its walls that made the heat bearable on a sweltering day. The history is interesting and admittance was only two-euros a person. Not recommended if walking easily is an issue.

After one heck of a climb the castle is a great place to visit information is in Greek and English very interesting place to visit if you are good on your feet and the views really are spectacular.
