As a rule, museums are not part of the scope of the site of Kastrologos. This building however is what’s left from the legendary Venetian castle of Chalkis, the so called “Castle of Negreponte”.

It was built most probably in the 15th century, when the construction of the fortification of Chalkis finished, shortly before the capture of the city by the Ottomans (1470).

It was at the edge of the moan of the castle and it was, perhaps, a defensive tower. It became a museum in 1981.
