Great views from the sea facing battlements with a curious small chapel (dedicated to the angel Gabriel) in its centre. On the lower level is a small church carved into the rock.

Palekastritsa Monastery. As you drive into Paleokastritsa you reach the main beach and large car park and the road continues up the hill (single track so controlled by tidal flow traffic lights) up to the monastery.
