At the very end of eastern Aegean, this small island, isolated, stands proud and beautiful with a past that reaches far into the past, as far as the Neolithic ages.
It was called Megisti in antiquity and its port was once second only to that of Symi, with 15000 inhabitants. Today Kastelloriso is a calm, getaway spot.
Witness to its glorious and turbulent past, the castle of the Knights of St. John of Rhodes. The tomb of Likios, at the foot of the castle, is a site belonging to the Hellenistic period, while at the Archaeological Museum one can admire Hellenistic and Roman items and objects of folk art.
A must see at Kastelloriso is the cave of Parastras, with marvelous stalactites and stalagmites. The town's cathedral is the Church of St Constantine Helen and on its feast day there is a grand celebration.
