Elea is a picturesque small village in the Laconic bay, near Molaoi. At the south side of the village, on a rock by the sea, there is a old watchtower that -obviously- has been renovated recently.

We do not have much info on this tower for the moment. It was probably Frankish, built in the 13th or the 14th century.
