  • Do visit when around! Although not much of a castle but ruins of a castle, once you reach the top the view is stunning. From the mountains to Corfu, the panorama is breathtaking. Visited in mid August and met no other people at the castle nor on the way up, only a local kid selling some goods next to the road :)
  • A true gem hardly spotted from bellow but offers great views towards the seaside and the inland mountains and roads. Parking a car below the path that leads towards the castle - or at least what is lefto from the old days. Although there is close to nothing written about it in the area - only a brief description at the bottom of the path, you can search for more on Wikipedia.
