Kyra Rini castle remains

Near Mesolongi is the Castle of Kyra Rini, but sadly not much remains of this medieval gem. Named after Lady Irene, daughter of Emperor Alexios Paleologos, it is best reached by hiking on a dirt road. Myth has it that there are two boxes of gold hidden in the castle, with a third box with snakes that guard the treasure.
