What people say

"The Fortress is a must while in Heraklion! The Fortress also known as Koules (means castle in Turkish) Fortress as well as known by Rocca a Mare. The history of the Fortress is fascinating and has epic views at the top. You will love it even if you are not a history buff. Everyone can appreciate its beauty and the views are gorgeous! "
"7:30 PM - The ferry from Santorini to Heraklion is ~2 hours. After dropping off your luggage at your hotel, you can check out this fortress for sunset. It closes at 8 PM, so if you can make it inside before then, that's great! If not, it's still beautiful to walk around "
"Admission: 4 Euros Old sea fort at the end of the port"
