A ruined tower north-west from the village of Dafni in Laconia and 3.5km south-west from the medieval settlement of Lykovouno.

We do not have information on the history and the construction of the tower. Probably, it existed before the Frankish occupation (13th century). According to a local tradition, a tunnel connected the tower with Lykovouno.
