The Tower is one of the five towers the castle used to have on the corners of its pentagonal part. It is circular and consists of two floors which communicate through a spiral staircase. Only four of the towers are redeemed nowadays (unfortunately, the one located at the corner where the parking area is these days has been destroyed). One of the four existing ones is now a residence, a very unique one since it has circular rooms. The towers used to be in direct contact with each other through a tunnel parallel to the outer road.
The loopholes of the tower can be still noticed. From outside they look as narrow openings although from inside they look like tunnels. From the tower by taking the ring road one reaches the entrance of the village-castle.
The implementation of the project required funding. Fields and land of Taxiarhis could guarantee a lot of money. A committee was therefore appointed to Metropolitan Ieronymos Gorgias (1910-1912).
The sale of the ecclesiastical property at auction resulted in a considerable amount of money, along with a donation from the Mesta Brotherhood of Constantinople, which made it possible to cover the cost of building the church.
Unfortunately, the money raised was deposited with the Bank, where due to the subsequent major historical events of 1912-1922, the deposits were drained and turned into national Bonds.
With the diligence and interest of physician Konstantinos Panadis and other progressive villagers, the assistance of the Mesta Brotherhood of Egypt, the strengthening of Mesta people leaving in America, the London Committee of the Chios, and the strengthening of the Greek State, the school was erected and delivered to education on September 4, 1927, where the opening took place.
