The Karababa Castle provides lovely view of the city from on top of old walls, but that is not all it has to offer. In decent shape, the walls of this old fortress remind you that Greece's history is long and full of battles.

Approached from the mainland side up steps through pines. Well preserved castle with an interesting & well presented museum of Greek and ottoman artefacts. Spend an hour here happily browsing; then wander down to the unrelated but proximal cafe bar just below.

The museum exhibit columns, engraved marble + stones, graves and many more. Which gives you a good view of Chalcidis' history. A must do!

There are not so much to see in this castle. Only two canons and that's it. But the view of Chalkis and its region is outstanding. This is because it is built on the top of a hill on the opposite side of Chalkis mainland....More

The view of the castle is very nice. You can see Chalkida from one end to the other. The castle itself is not of interest. There is a venetian/ottoman wall round it in quite good condition, and a typical Greek church within the castle. That's...More
