From the Latin Peloponnese to the Knight Hospitaller's Rhodes and from the Venetian Corfu to the Turkish-Venetian Crete, there are more than 600 castles and towers scattered in the Greek inland.
Even if it is quite unknown, Greece is one of the few countries around the world that can confront England, Scotland, Germany or Spain as to the number of the castles it has.
Almost every medieval Knight's or-der visited sometime the Greek ter-ritory along with the Byzantines, Sa-racens, Venetians, Ottomans, Cru-saders etc. thus leaving their mark in the form of a fortification structure.
So, even when ruins is all that’s left in place of some Greek medieval for-tresses they have indeed played an important role in the shape of Greece's and in general Europe's history.
Castles in Greece is a unique mind-trip to dozens of Greek medieval castles through hundreds of high quality and breathtaking photo-graphs along with history narration from well-known Greek artists and authors.
