Artikaina Castle near Oreino Korakovouni

Shortly before we reach Oreino Korakovouni (approaching it from the northwest), a 3 kilometer dirt road heads off to the left toward Artikaina Castle, a Byzantine era fortification. We can get to the castle by hiking along a rough path for 20-30 minutes, enjoying the view toward Paralio Astros.

Location

Just a few meters before Oreino Korakovouni, a 2.5 kilometer dirt road heads left which will take us toward Artikaina Castle (a Byzantine era fortification about which no details are available). From the road, we will see the castle on our left. We can park there and walk for about 600 meters to reach what is left of the castle walls. It is not far, but the ‘path’ is rough, so it requires 20-30 minutes. However, it is worth the trouble, since we will have a spectacular view of the sea and Paralio Astros from the castle.
