A tower-house on a hill south of the village Malta, close to Kampos.

It was built in 1814 by the local lord Poulos Mavrikos.

The tower is a 3-storey building around 10m high. Its layout is a rectangle 5.5m✖8.5m. The entrance is at the first floor of the south side. It was accessed through a movable wooden ladder.

Close to the tower there is a chapel dedicated to Agios Georgios.
