Climb to the View

It is ever present in Molyvos. It’s like a guardian angel, hovering over everything. Inviting you to visit, it can only be ignored for so long.

What you will find now is a well documented castle complex from the 14th Century or thereabouts, a 21st Century taverna, and a great view which will give you a lifetime of memories.
