Remains of a castle on a hill named Gourgara or Vourgara or Goulgara, south of the modern village Agia Marina in the Igoumenitsa region of Epirus.

There is absolutely no information about this castle from historical sources. Most probably it is a remnant from the period of the Despotate of Epirus (13th or 14th century).
