It had rectangular bulwarks and two massive towers. Its only gate leads to the south-east corner tower. Two construction stages can be distinguished. Inside the castle there are preserved ruins of buildings and two tanks. This is the place where a significant inscription dated 1473 and referring to the activity of Roman Catholic priests in the area comes from.
The castle is easily accessible, and a number of signs direct the visitors all over the route on the winding mountain. It is also easily seen from the valley below and the main road. If you are there by car, just follow the signs and make sure you park your vehicle in the designated parking area.
The castle of Kritinia (Kastello, for the locals) is a Venetian castle built in the 16th century on a hill about 131 meters above the village of Kritinia. It is fairly considered the gem of the village as it offers a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea, the island of Chalki and the islets of Strogyli, Makri, Alimia and others.
