Some ruins of a castle on a rocky hill above the town Agiasos of the southeastern side of Lesbos island.

There are two construction phases visible: a Byzantine one of the 8th or 9th century and one around the 14th century when the island was ruled by the Genoans.

The layout of the castle is almost a square with dimensions 50mx50m. A wall at the eastern side remains at a height of 1.6m. Also a NW corner at 1.80m and part of the west walls.
