Larani is a small village at the middle of the prefecture of Heraclion in Crete. The earliest report about it dates back to 1301.

The tower (which is actually a regular castle) is located on a hill south of the village and north of the abandoned village Borros.

We have no information about this castle. It looks like a Venetian fortress.
