Kástro Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Inhabited since Antiquity, Kástro was the capital of the island under Venetian rule (1207-1537), and continued as such until 1836. Today, it is a fashionable village with a medieval atmosphere; Kástro is a remarkable example of a Venetian fortified town. It also has numerous churches built in the 16C and 17C. Sights include the Archaeological Museum, where finds from the Agios Andréas site are on display, the Vríssis Monastery south of Kástro, and, further south, the Panagía tou Vounoú Monastery and the Hrissopigí Church.
