Castle entrance is located at the end of the pier in Myrina (largest town in Lemnos); to the right before you take the steps to the castle is a restaurant to dine and see all of Lemnos; about 10 minutes of hiking up the stairs is another dining option where you see the entire village from above; sneakers are definitely recommended although I did see several girls in flip flop; the hike to the very top is challenging in the heat; recommended you hike up later in the day; the view from above is amazing!! there is no cost to hike up

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 above the last civilian houses of Myrina, we saw a couple of young deers like Bamby of Disney.

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 things on the rock itself worth noticing. The few dozen deer grazing on the rock are a bonus - it might be a bit hard locating one, as they are experts at hiding away from people, but this will only make it more rewarding.

Keep in mind, however, that it's a somewhat physically demanding attraction. There's walking involved, and if you truly want to enjoy the 360-deg view, be prepared for some mild climbing as well.

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.
