    Windmill visit
    Well worth a visit to see it in action. Millstone rotates a lot faster than expected.

    Fabulous castle

    I visited this in 2019. It's a fabulous castle and well worth a visit. It has aged over time but you can still appreciate its scale and how it presence must have put fear into all who opposed the Knights of St John who built it. Pity Kos does not make more of this attraction and do some sympathetic restoration.
