A ancient city on the peninsula Bisti that remained in use through the Byzantine and Venetian periods.

The city was protected by walls that were cyclopean at the southern side and medieval ones at the northern side of Bitsi.

Only a few traces of the fortification remain today, as it was destroyed by locals (for house building in Ermioni and Hydra) and foreigners (searching for ancient findings).
