    Unique sunset view
    The picturesque village of Molivos is crowned with a medieval fortress. This is a historical monument that stands on top of a hill. It is a strong characteristic of the island attracting thousands of visitors every year. The castle is an adornment for the village and it was built in the Byzantine times. It is definitely worth a walk through the three gates and along its walls. We were impressed on how well preserved it was, after all these centuries. Today and mostly in the summer months, several celebrations and cultural displays take place. This altitude offers a magnificent view from up there and a unique Aegean sunset, the best theme for your photos.
