Few remains of a tower atop the hill of Agios Ioannis southeast from the village Tselepakos in Arcadia.

We do not have more info about this tower which was the main tower of a castle the remains of which lie at the slopes of the hill.

The defensive role of the tower must have been related to the nearby castle of Davia which is also of unknown chronology (but existed since the Late Byzantine period).
