At the center of the village Politika in Evia there is a square medieval tower.

There is no information about its history, but it was obviously a Venetian construction and most probably from the 15th century.

The Venetians had become the rulers of the Frankish territory of Chalkis since 1383. Until the end of their rule in 1470, when the Ottomans came, they constructed many towers like this in the area.
