A Byzantine castle that was used also by the Ottomans later. Further information is not available.

Probably the purpose of the small fort was to guard the secondary passage (north of Egnatia) from Macedonia to Thrace between the mountain above and the plain below which used to be a lake.

From the castle, only a few scattered ruins are visible today.
