The ruins of a Frankish or Venetian tower located east of the village Lihada of northern Evia island.

No more information is available for this tower. We can assume that it was Venetian (like most towers in Evia) and that was built around the 15th century or around the end of the 14th century.

Only the western wall is preserved today at a height of circa 5 meters.
