The castle of Livadia is on a 240m high hill, at the south edge of the city.
At the same location, there was an ancient acropolis. at least since 5th century BC. It was later used -and repaired- by the Byzantines and by the Francs.
The shape of the castle today is from the period that the warriors of the Catalan Company occupied the area. That is why the castle is considered a "Catalan castle", one of the 4 of this kind in Greece.
