If u find yourself in Sitia you should get up to the fortress- but don’t make a trip for it. We happened upon a kids end of year concert - complete with Cretan costumes & song... lovely backdrop... but still... not a lot there.

We were lucky the fortress was open (8am-3pm). Nice fortress with entrance fee of 2 euros for adults (kids free). Happy we entered, nice if you do not expect to see a lot. We enjoyed the visit. You can make nice pics of you want.

Ancient Venetian fortress with exceptional views. Although information is limited, it's worth visiting and inexpensive at €2 per person. Sits on the hillside in Sitia.

there is very little to see inside the fortress, but the view is impressive. If you want to go in and is a senior the fee is only 1 euro (normal 3 euros)
