A tower-complex west and above of the village Ageranos of Mani. It is larger that the typical towers of Mani with special, castle-like features.

It belonged to Tsikourios who was a nephew of the great bey of Mani Antonis Grigorakis whose tower is inside the village.

The tower must have been built around the same time with the castle of Grigorakis, i.e. at the end of the 18th century or the beginning of the 19th century.
