A nice stop if you're passing by. We did have to pay for the parking lot, not sure if that's usual or just some local kids trying to make an extra buck during their holiday. From the parking lot it's a litte hike uphill to the actual castle. Didn't visit the castle itself but from the outside you can already see most of the ruin.

Original wall of the central tower; exhibitions and makets on each floors; tomb of the former landlord Kinizsi P.; magnificent landscape.

From outside it looks small but you can spend easily more than an hour inside

Amazing view from the top of the tower. They will start a major refurbishment soon, so go and see while you can!

Seeing a historical Castle is always amazing me. The surroundings and the view is very nice. Small parking area; however, we arrived just before the closing (one hour before 5 pm) there were no problem to find a place to park. In addition received 10% discount. It is a must to see.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
