Next to the archeological site of Paleopolis (the most important of Samothraki and one of the most important in Greece) on a high hill above the sea, there are the three towers of Gateluzzi, a remain of the era that the Genoan family ruled the island.

The Genoans were the lords of Samothraki from 1355 (after a period of Venetian rule since 1204) until 1457 when the Turks conquered the island.
