The Castle and the Acropolis was built in the 15th century, on the ruins of an older Byzantine castle. The outer walls embraced the whole peninsula of Panagia, which was then the core of the settlement. The city start expanding outside the walls, only after 1864.
Nowadays, the castle houses a small café and a scene and many concerts and theaters take place in this idyllic surrounding, during the summer months. Don't miss the panoramic view from the castle's tower.
