A Genoan vigla (watchtower) on the rocky islet Strovili at the northeastern coast of Cios island. It had visual contact with Megali Vigla .
Only its basis remains today.

A comprehensive article about the history and the construction of the vigles of Chios, is published in the blog of Kastrologos: Βίγλες της Χίου. (In Greek only, I am afraid).
