A tower-house on the road to the village Agios Lavrentios next to the little church of Agios Nikolaos. The building is much closer to Lehonia than to Agios Lavrentios.

It dates back to 14th century. It is classified of Catalan origin because from 1320 until the end of the 14th century (or perhaps until the Ottoman conquest in1423), the region was ruled by Catalan lords who were lieges of the Duchy of Athens.
