It's a very nice castle, old with allot of culture inside. We had the chance to participate at a very nice show in this castle, a traditional Greek music and dance show. It was very pleasant.

4 Euros entry & worth spending up to an hour admiring the views and the ancient ruins. Probably best seen early in the day as little shade.

We stayed just a short walk from Kos Town and found everyone very friendly and helpful. We stayed in Lambi and the shops outside the centre of the town were less busy and cheaper.
