    Catch the sunset
    This is not actually a castle but the remains of a castle! One tower and few walls have survived time on this hill above Kyparissia. A small cafeteria offers nice views to the town and the sea. If you go in the evening, stay for the sunset. It will be one of your ever best sunsets! I suggest you go by taxi to the castle (5 min from the central square of Kyparissia) and then walk down through the Old Town. On your way, you will find a lovely square with a large plane tree and a cafeteria with balcony to the sea.
