Ruins of a Turkish Koule (small fort) between the villages of Anopoli and Aradaina in the Sfakia area. One of the many forts that the Ottomans built in the 19th century in an attempt to control the rebels of Crete and especially of the difficult region of Sfakia.

Only the lower parts of the walls still remain. There are also some water tanks nearby which were built later with materials taken from the fort.
