The Tower

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 School

The idea of ​​erecting a school building matured into the thought of the villagers  for several years. The need for the erection of a new and modern School was born after the creation of the New Taxiarch. They used as a school, a small temple, the Temple of Sotiros, which were in the square of the village.
