Road map to Tower of Parorio

Approach to the monument:
The tower is visible from the NR Livadia-Lamia, but from there, one has to walk on a rough terrain for, perhaps, 20 minutes.
Like most isolated and neglected towers, the acces to the surrounding area is free but the entance inside is difficult and dangerous.
