The cemetery of Kardamena located on the northern side of the settlement is the starting point of this trail. Walk along the main road heading towards the northwestern hills while enjoying the view of the imposing castle on the horizon. You’ll see a big white warehouse just a few steps ahead to your left and after walking 200 more meters you’ll come across a wide trail in good condition to your right. Follow it through eroded rocks and olive groves up a hill overlooking Nisyros. In about 20 minutes you will have reached the enceinte of the castle. Head down the hill in order to return, starting from the parking lot. Turn right when you come across the dirt road and right again after passing by a small bridge. The trail is parallel to an irrigation ditch ending up at a farm. Leave the farm behind and follow the dirt road to your right that will get you to the main road opposite the big warehouse where the trail started.
