Just look at how beautiful this castle is on google earth. The castle is built on top of a beautiful small mountain. It is currently in ruins but still a great part of history. The castle was abandoned when the Ottoman Empire took over in the 14th century.

Do you know the name of the castle? Is it the only one on Mykonos? I love Google Maps! Such a cool thing to be able to see it. Unless I know the name I am concerned I wouldn't be able to find it once I am there.
 

Mykonos Bar Taken To Court By American Tourists For Charging €600 For Two Drinks And A Meze !

Sadly nothing directly will happen to this place..... and no-one has the power to shut them down......yes they will be fined...so what?....There are countless negative reviews on Tripadvisor which I have already posted.....the way I have understood this is that they believe this is media exposure to enhance further business....I have lived and worked in Tourism Industry in various parts and I must say this is spectacularly show biz style negative PR ..... ripping off Travellers is not new in Mykonos.....I will ask my friends who are born and live there what the motives are behind this to allow this situation get out of control....

Mykonos has had its Champagne fuelled Tourism

Truthfull to the point, saturation beyond belief, this was happening 20 years ago,my friends who have a travel agency told me'Hash if you want the remember your Mykonos don't come back, keep those memories'thats how much they are fed up with their lives there when it takes 30 minutes just to get somewhere instead of 5 minutes!...It has taken me a very long time to recover missing my Mykonos for it gave me a new life which I didn't have previously..... here is our lovely home for many years which doesn't exist as there is a villa built there now!....
