View is worth for trouble! If You visit in Lindos by car, it is not very far away from the main road! Not so much visitors, so it felt like a little adventure.

Not as well kept as Lindos castle and pretty much ruined nevertheless steeped with history from the BC era.

Can be a bit hard to find on google maps, really just drive towards it once you are close, follow signs to beach not the town. Tricky little walk up the top but worth it for the view and the ruin
