A tower-house inside the village Mikri Mantinia, close to Kalamata.

It belonged to the prominent family of Kapetanakis, but we do not have more information about it.

Most probably it was built at the same period with the main Kapetanakis mansion in Charavgi. That means that it must have been built around the end of the 18th century.
