What's Assos Castle Like

Assos castle is found in the hills above the tiny fishing village of Assos. It’s just under an hours drive from the capital Argostoli.

The original castle and fortifications would have taken up almost all of the Assos peninsular and the walls would have been close to 2km in length, the castle is 170m above sea level making it the perfect place to protect the island from pirates and invaders.

The remains of the castle consist mainly of just the external walls and an entrance gate but there’s also an old chapel and the remains of other internal buildings too. There’s no entrance fee to get into the castle and have a look around but unfortunately there’s also no information available on site either.

To get to Assos castle you have to walk from the village, it’ll take roughly 20 or 30 minutes to get there and if you take the unpaved path then it cab be a bit tricky in places. The paved path is obviously easier but is the longer route. As well as the historical remains you get spectacular views of Assos and the rest of Kefalonia.
