A stunning castle overlooking the endless blue of the Aegean. It is quite a walk away from the port as the Village is about 3 km and from there it has a climb that’s around 20 to 30 minutes. Definitely, worth a visit as apart from the magical landscape of the castle, you will also see the abandoned medieval village.

6. Town Hall

A wonderful building, of exceptional architecture and beauty. It illuminates at night and becomes even more beautiful. Next to it stands the clock tower and the two buildings combine beautifully. The area has several abandoned houses & some looted. A must-visit place especially at night.

7. The Clock Tower

A beautiful building that really dominates the port of Halki and is a landmark for the whole island. You will definitely see it when you set foot on Halki. It’s emblematic and imposing, it’s located just next to the town hall creating a wonderful combination.
