There are a couple of ways of getting to the top of the Kavos headland on which the Kastellorizo Archaeological Museum and Knights’ Castle stand, through the stepped backstreets around the east side of Kastellorizo’s main harbour. But this wide stone stairway is the most direct way by foot direct from the quay, and you get clear views all the way up.

It is also the most direct way to the Horafia district on the the other side of the headland. It seems a bit odd that the hand-painted sign just before the steps particularly points the way to Agios Konstantinos kai Eleni church rather than any of the other sights along the way. The church is the island’s cathedral and is very popular among Greek visitors, especially as most of the island’s baptisms, weddings and funerals are held there. It is worth visiting, but it’s not the absolute must-see for tourists. And anyway, when we got there it was closed, and there was nobody around to ask who had the keys.

A couple of other signs along the way point to the Archaeological Museum but run out just before you get to the turn off, so if you don’t know what you are looking for you could sail on by and miss it. Luckily, My Favourite Planet shows you the way.

Winter: Tuesday - Sunday : 08:00 -15:00 Summer: From 1-4-2017 Until 31-10-2017 Tuesday- Sunday: 08:00 - 11:00 Monday closed.
