The biggest medieval castle of the Peloponnese. Have good shoes and walk through the ruins to the other side of the mountain (around an hour and a half). The view is more than rewarding!

Amazing view of surrounding region. Located on top of the mountain near Ancient Corinth and city of Corinth. Amazing triple-walled fortifications. Ideally you would need 3-4 hours at least. Bring sturdy shoes. Not for people who have difficulty walking. It can be quite windy there. NOTA BENE: this site closed at 3pm when we went, so check closing time.

This is one of the most amazing places seen, at least by me. The construction is immense and if put in perspective of the ages the task becomes even more amazing. The walk to the top is tiring though definitely not impossible. I would not recommend it with small children The vire from the top is definitely worth the effort... More

I walked up to the top of the path and enjoyed the wonderful views. The walk up is on stones and is probably more difficult coming down. It had rained before we for there, but was fine during our visit. Go slow and be careful. And enjoy the view.

Along with Ancient Corinth, this is a must on any visit to the area. Fantastic views from the top, impressive just for sheer size and not difficult to imagine its historical goings on. The climb itself is great fun but don't even think about doing it in flip-flops (tho I'm sure many have!). Even the initial paved section is worn... More

Where to begin! The walls of the fort are very impressive, huge and you can really see the different time periods in the brickwork. Walking along the walls gives you some great views. The building on top with a lookout was locked but the views from the end of the hill were just as impressive. And the site is completely... More

We had a driver from Athens for the day and stopped in Corinth to see the major sites. This was a great surprise as we had no idea what to expect. You should plan on spending 2-3 hours here. We were on our way to Epidaurus and Mycenae so didn't spend as much time as we would like here. This... More

No transport, nothing. Or rent a car or ask for a ride, try to visit till 4 pm, after it closed. Can be reached till Ancient Corinth bus stop by bus from the Corinth bus station (don't mix there are few in the centre, better ask locals for navigation), and after or by foot till the top of the mountain...

In Greece it was the norm to build castles on the tops of mountains. The reasoning is that they were supposed to be easier to defend. As such a water source was also needed so that one could not be 'waited out' until resources dried up. This site, like others had such a water source. It seems amazing when one... More

If you are in the area of Corinth, Greece you must see this fortress. Hire a taxi from the town center and for 15E the taxi will take you to the base of the fortress. From there take a slow journey up to all 3 levels of the fortress--each affording their own special views. Once you have reached the top... More
