A tower-house in the village Agios Adrianos near Nafplion.

It is believed that the tower was built around the middle of the 18th century. The original owner is unknown. It was modified several times later, but today is in bad condition.


Structure, Fortification & Buildings

The layout of the tower is a long rectangle measuring ca. 11.0✖6.5 m. It was a 3-storey building. The entrance was in the ground floor (unusual, since in similar buildings of that era the entrance was higher) but it was protected by a murder-hole.

The defense was supported by gun-loops in the first floor.
