A Byzantine fortress, probably built in the 13th century by Michael II, Despot of Epirus. It is sited on a rock 160m above sea level, washed by the sea on three sides. With only one narrow passage connecting it to the land. Here, in 1537, 3000 people from the surrounding villages took refuge in the fortress, fleeing from the Turks. Up to the time of its abandonment in the time of the British Protectorate, the fortress remained impregnable. At the summit stands the little church of the Archangels Michael and Gabriel, while close up to the north-west wall a cave forms the chapel of Agia Kyriaki.
