Placed at the top of Patras you can see all the city and surroundings. During the summer there are a lot of festivities inside the castle.

It's a bit of a climb up the stairs from the old town but this castle and the views are well worth it and should not be missed if you are in Patras. Make sure you see the Roman Odeon while you are up there....More

I would suggest to go there when it is a bit more windy and cooler (at least during summer time). The place is very nice and the view is amazing.

I must admit I had to visit the castle for so many years and a couple of months ago I decided to pay a visit with my daughter. Then we went again with all the family. They have transformed this place so well, it's unbelievable!...More

You can walk around the castle, and you can see the city below. You should go there during sunset or at the night. Great view!

Very interesting, few restrictions on where you can walk, wonderful views and it's free entry! A steep walk up steps from the main shopping area but well worth it.
