“Not maintained as expected but still good choise”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

the old walls and roads are not cleared from the grass.. Generally I think they can do better maintenance of the whole place in order to make it more attractive for the tourists.
But still the view of whole Kavala and archaeological side of the Castle offer you few minutes escape from the current times and the all noise in all Kavala

“Best views, steep climb”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We found no way to get up there by car, so you have to walk up using stairs and narrow streets, sometimes with no signs (but people on the streets are very helpful, using the international hand waving techniques since they most likely do not speak your language of choice). It is not as difficult as it looks. Once there - the views of the old city and the harbour are great. There are 4 points of interest inside, but it is the view that should get you up there.

“Great view”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Climbed to the top with a great view of the city. Not much to see in the castle itself. Did it both during the day and evening, which was very pretty with all the lights.
