This ruined castle has a small church inside its wall and is very pretty in the Aegean sunlight. The steep steeped climb is worth the views from the top. They are across the Aegean coastline with beautiful blue seas.

Not just the castle but this coastline in Rhodes is beautiful compared to the east coast. There is a great cafe at the base of the castle as well. The drive up to the castle is spectacular.

Stunning spot located on a steep road just west of Monolithos village. There is limited free parking at the edge of the road, with a pleasant & well priced taverna selling drinks and snacks. The climb up to the castle/church is via steep steps, but...More

Really worth the walk (which actually isn’t as far as you believe before). Be careful of the slippery steps though - I did manage to fall! But I guess that’s just part of the experience really - you can’t expect a piece of history to...More
