In the plain on the small hill there is a fortress from the 13th century built by Crusaders after the destruction of Constantinople. Entrance was charged 4 euros. The walls are well preserved and offer a beautiful view of the sea and the distant Zakinthos,...More

Don’t go in a Monday. We did. You are still able to walk around the defence wall and read a bit about it from a small booth. I would love to go back and look inside. It looks so interesting.

We visited Greece to see the Ancient Greek temples and sites, and stopped at this medieval site - rich with Frankish and Crusader history as it was in between Delphi and Olympia. If you are doing the same trip, I would recommend it: the castle...More

We took our boys, 9 and 11, to visit this castle. It was worth wearing sneakers or sturdy sandals. They enjoyed the view and climbing around, although not too strenuous. Exterior parts have little if any explanation, but the unexpected interior museum section had a...More

An excellent castle to visit. Artefacts displayed well and Castle in good state. Some works have been done to show the castle as it once was. Beautiful views from the kastro.

There are not many landmarks in Killini-Arcoudi area and the Castro is a nice change to relaxed life on the beach. It's mostly a ruin still it has its own histirical atmosphere. It's also a nice ride up the hill on a bycicle if you...More

Chlemoutsi Castle is situated on the Top of the hill overlooking Castle village in Killini area (and not Katakolo as it is mentionned). it is one of the better well preserved (if not the best) medieval castles in Peloponissos and surely worth visiting if you...More

Not as romantic as the castle at Karytaina, maybe, but very much better preserved, and fascinating for anybody with an interest in crusader / Frankish military thinking. People interested in Greece under the Franks generally might also like to go a few miles down the...More

Unless someone is driving to take the ferry to Zakynthos, or vacationing in the area, this is off the beaten track. We came back after ten years, this time with our children. The renovation has been a slow process, but they have done a wonderful...More

As stunning as it is there's not a lot there. The museum is small but the staff are engaging and will talk and explain more if you ask. If you're in a hurry you could whizz round in 30 mins., but at least an hour should be... More
