A tower next to the deserted monastery of Agia Triada (holy Trinity) around 500 m from the picturesque village Zaroucla in Achaea.

The church is post-Byzantine dated in the 13th or 14th century. The frescos inside are from the late 18th century.

The chronology of the tower is not known. Perhaps it was built for the defense of the monastery but does not seem to be as old as a monastery.

A newspaper article refers to it as “Tower of Papadimitropoulos” which means that perhaps it was used as a mansion.
