Palaiochora Castle Reviews
Al di là del valore artistico delle rovine, la passeggiata è molto gradevole e il panorama tra i ruderi molto bello. Gita da fare quando è nuvoloso ;) more »Beyond the artistic value of the ruins, the walk is very pleasant and the landscape of the ruins very nice. Tour to do when it's cloudy;)
Do not miss this place off the beaten track. Nothing can tell you beforehand the feelings you will experience. Frustrating is the little info available on this ancient capital of the island more »
Atmospheric abandoned old Town of Kythera, I followed a very nice path from village Trifyllianika to Paleochora (2km, about 1 hour walking). There are great remains of the castle and Byzantine churches. Be careful when walking through the remains because the town was built on the edge of the cliff.
Well worth a visit. Spectacular setting with deep gorges protecting the town on three sides - it's a wonder that it was ever sacked. C. 400m walk on rough path from car park. Little shade.
