A Byzantine castle at a location inhabited since the Neolithic period.

It is at the southeast area of the Corinth county, on the south slopes of the mountain Politis or Poulageza.


History

The castle was built most probably in the beginning of the 13th century, when the area was under the rule of Michael I Angelos Komnenos, the "emperor" of the Despotate of Epirus. That is how the village and the castle got their name.
