The castle of Kleisoura is at the center of the nortern half of Evia island. It was one of the strongest fortifications of the island during the Middle Ages

It was built (or reconstructed) by the Franks early in the 13th century.

The few vestiges are covered by plantation today. The approach is very difficult

Entrance:
Like most remote, ruined and neglected fortifications, entrance is not an issue. The difficult part is to approach the castle and walk around inside.
