Yet another ruin Jun 20, 2015
The castle of Kritinia, called Kastellos, is located high above the town Kritinia. Kritinia is located avbout 60 km from Rhodes city. Building start in 1309 and the castle was finished in 1472 to prtect the people from Kritinia from the attacks of rivals.

The castle is not in the best condition. There are stairs leading up to the castle, giving you a nice view of the surroundings. inside the castle there are some stair but also a lot of slippery rocks. I would suggest wearing sturdy footwear and also a bottle of water as it can get quit warm.

There is not a whole lot left of the castle itself though it does give you an amazing view at the sea. On bright days you can see as far as the islands Chalki en Alimnia.

I found Kritinia to be one of the less touristic places I had seen. There is enough parking space and entering the Castle is free.
