North of Iria, a village in Argolis, and close to the road from Nafplion to Tracheia there are the ruins of a medieval settlement and next to it two churches, St.Nicholas and St.George and this tower.

Only one wall remains today from the tower (the south, parallel to the road) without other eelents (no doors or windows).

We do not have more information on this tower. Maybe it was a Venetian tower but maybe Ottoman.

St.Nicholas was built in 1380. Perhaps the tower was from the same period. Unless it is an Ottoman construction. In this case, it is dated in later periods.
