I went up on a Tuesday. The entrance is locked, which I can understand in order to keep out vandals or possibly campers, but I was disappointed to not get to go inside because it looked pretty cool. And felt cool from the breeze coming...More

Giants propably existed and if so they certainly lived here! This tower is located on your way to Vitali and is one of the most astonishing buildings of Cyclades. Amazing!

When we visited the tower was in a poor state but I believe that work has now started to renovate/protect it.

It is a nice landmark but very badly maintained and not welcoming to visitors. Not a sign, not traveller information. The path to visit it not suitable at all.
