Access
Approach to the monument:
The castle is on the up-country road from Alexandroupolis to Avantas, 4km north of Alexandroupolis. It is in a walking distance of 300m from this road.
Entrance:
The entrance is free but not easy because the path in the final meters is not clear, with dense vegetation. The walk inside is not easy either.
