Castle of Kritinia


Location: Kritinia   

The Castle of Kritinia in Rhodes, Dodecanese: On a hill approximately 131 metres above the village of Kritinia, northern Rhodes, stand the ruins of a medieval castle. With elements of Byzantine and Venetian architecture, this castle was constructed by the Knights of Saint John. It was originally built on three levels and each level was assigned to a different Grand Master.

The castle is a short climb from the aspault road and its location offers breathtaking view to the Aegean Sea, the neighbouring island of Halki and the port of Kameiros. Inside the walls, there are the remnants of a chapel. In the close monastery of Saint John, you can view lovely wall paintings from the 16th century. In summer, there are few events taking place in this Castle, such as festivities from the Medieval Rose Festival that is organized every June.
