A tower at the location “Madamia” south of the modern village Polydroso near the torrent “Xerias”.

The time of construction is not certain but it was most probably Frankish. The Franks arrived in the area shortly after the Fall of 1204 and we know that they built or repaired most of the towers there.

The ruins of two of the walls still stand today at a height of 10 meters.
