The islet of Agia Triada is very close to the port of Eretria in central Evia. It is a private-owned estate and belongs to Papanikolaou family who acquired it in 1958.

There is a tower on the island for which there is absolutely no information. It resembles other towers in the region, therefore it must have been a Venetian tower built in the 15th century, the latest.
