A Turkish outpost on the old frontierline between Greece and Ottoman Empire which was agreed at the treaty of Constantinople of 1881.

Apparently the little fort was built some time in the 1880s together with hundreds of similar outposts along the border line of that period. The border was at this point until the beginning of the first Balkan War in 1912.
