Worth a quick visit not far from the main road south from Gavrio - the sign post is small and easily missed (I see a lot of reviews saying it is hard to find!) The entrance to the tower is blocked by a metal gate...More

Turnoff the main road about 10 minutes walk from Gavrio. There is a sign on the road. It is then about 40 minutes walk uphill, though not as steep as some other hikes in the area. Sealed road most of the way then a short...More

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.

This tower is considered to be one of the most preserved Cycladic Towers. A little bit of walking needed since there is a fence and you need to leave the car outside. Really worth visiting.
