    Kalekoy (Kastro) Castle, Kalekoy, Gokceada.
    4 more images

    OK so it isn't the best castle in the world but it gives you some nice views across the surrounding coastline, bay and valley.
    As far as I can find out, the castle! (rubble more like) is of Genoese origin and apart from the towers, some looking precarious, there is precious little else.
