Only very limited opening hours 10.30 - 2.30 And last entry is at 1.30pm. The entrance fee is 4euro per person. It’s a lovely place for a stroll and there are some great views but just not enough info about the site. I came away...More

Outstanding views over Zante with loads of history. Steep in places and as mentioned would recommend trainers than sandals.

The castle is very quiet with lots of tall pine trees and great views all around. I wish the information boards contained a little more details about the history of the castle.

Since we took wrong on the time and days I doubt I am the one who answer the openinh hours. But I'd believe you can take that in, in a smaller bag or something. I took my camerabag in and there were no problems.
