Monolithos Castle

Monolithos village slumbers at the foot of Akramitis and is little disturbed even when the coaches thunder through en route to Monolithos castle, which is firmly on the tourist agenda. The road runs alongside the village so, unless an effort is made to get out and walk around, little is seen of the way of life there. The road down to the castle is good but drive slowly so the viewpoint from above is not missed. Monolithos castle sits astride Monoperta, a blunted needle of grey rock rising precipitously to 774ft (263m). This is no fairy tale castle, but a real life impregnable fortress built by the Grand Master d'Aubusson. The thick walls thread around the top and inside is the white church of Ag Panteleimon . Steps lead up from the car park below the castle to an area enclosed by the walls. From the top the views are absorbing both along the coastline and of the offshore islands including Halki.
