A high tower in a small monastery complex outside the village Agios Andreas in Arcadia, near the road to the beach of Agios Andreas on the eastern coast of Peloponnese.

The complex is a dependency of the nearby monastery of Panagia Eortakousti. The church is dedicated to the Annunciation of our Lady and that is why is called “Evangelistria”.

In the tower there is an inscription with the chronology of the (re)construction: 1715.
