One of the most historical sites in Milos, and probably the last remaining sign of Venetian rule on the Island. “Kastro” was built during the 13th century along with a small settlement called “Chora”. It is located on the second highest hilltop of Milos and is around 280 meters tall. At the very peak is Panagia Skiniotissa (Also reffered to as “Mesa Panagia”). There is also a bigger church you may noticed called Panagia Thalassitra.
You will be amazed at how well preserved the castle is, especially due to turbulent history it endured over the eras. Venturing up to the castle you will notice quite a few ruins, but also some scattered homes and churches along the way. The village was not able to keep up with the speed of the population’s growth which lead to many moving down the hill (This area is now known as Plaka).
Here you can enjoy probably the best panoramic view of Milos, and I would suggest venturing up to enjoy the incredible array of colors offered by the sunset of this beautiful island.
