Paleohora Castle/Fortress (Paleohora)

Built in the 12th Century by Byzantines from Monemvasia, it’s strategically located within a stunning gorge that offers ample natural protection. Within the fortress you’ll find the beautiful Church of St. Barbara. If you love all things spooky, visit the castle after sundown – locals swear you’ll hear the screams of women who were killed by Barbarossa.
