Remnants of a Byzantine castle on a low coastal hill between the village Kyparissi and the beach of Kyparissi.

There is no more info about this castle for which is not certain that it was really a Byzantine one. However it is true that there are several fortifications in the region of eastern Laconia that were created or reinforced (like Monemvasia) in the period between the 10th and 12th centuries.

The few things we know about the medieval Kyparissi is that existed since 10th century and that in 1435 it was a fief of the Duke of Athens Nerio ΙΙ Acciaiuoli.
