Road map to Castle of Riniasa

Access
Approach to the monument:
From the NR Preveza-Igoumenitsa exit to the beach of Riza. It seems that it is not possible to reach the castle by car.
Entrance:
Like most remote, ruined and neglected fortifications, entrance is not an issue. The difficult part is to approach the castle and walk around inside.
