Paliokastro is the oldest and the most important monument of Kastellorizo. It is built over the ruins of an ancient Doric citadel. It is located on the west side of the island, around 1km from Megisti.

The castle was in use from the 3rd century BC until the 20th century, the period of the Italian occupation. The knights of Rhodes also have used it but they did not make any modifications.
