A lovely circular walk through the ruined castle with breathtaking sea views. The EU restored some of the site and put in lights along the path so the place could be enjoyed safely at twilight. People have put a lot of effort into smashing almost...More

Nothing spectacular. A hot climb with a view at the top. Not much else to say. Want a little exercise?

Nice castle with amazing views but it is a shame it is not looked after regularly, it is free to visit.

.....Has such a magnificent building with a great view and I imagine an interesting story to tell been left in such awful disrepair surrounded by loads of rubbish!!! This could be made into a great attraction, so sad in its current state.

As the castle dominates Kassiopi and is just a short climb from the main street you should definitely visit. Great views although much of the time you can't see over the high walls. A few platforms might be an idea. There is lighting at pavement...More

Kassiopi Castle must once have been an impressive sight as it was huge dominating the hill above Kassiopi. However there is not a whole lot left. If you want to see the castle without a climb, take a look at the old church and any...More
