Kastelorizo (or Megisti) is the Aegean’s easternmost island.
It has been inhabited since prehistoric times. The Dorians who settled it later constructed fortified acropolises near the present day town and at Palaiokastro, where some ruins can still be seen. The name Kastellorizo comes from its castle, Castello Rosso (or red castle), erected by the Knights of St. John.

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.

Kastelorizo Today

The island’s only settlement is Megisti, otherwise known as Kastellorizo, on the northeast coast. Its houses line the horseshoe-shaped port and climb up the foothills of the mountain behind it. The top of the mountain is crowned by the aforementioned castle.

The gracious two-storey neoclassical houses with their brightly painted doors and windows, wooden balconies and tile roofs on the waterfront and the majestic domes of the churches testify to the island’s former prosperity.
A photograph in the Archaeological Museum will show you how many hundreds of houses there used to be. Most of them were destroyed by World War II bombs.

Though there are no beaches as such on the island, you can take a little boat to the particularly beautiful blue grotto of Parasta, and there is excellent swimming from the rocks near the port. Boats are also on hand to take you to the nearby islets of Ro and Strongli.
Both islands have wonderful beaches.

Ro became famous when its sole inhabitant, the lady of Ro, used to raise the Greek flag there every morning.
