Acropolis (Koulas)

The city’s most renowned attraction is the Acropolis. This Byzantine construction was built in the 9th century AD on top of an ancient fortress of 7th century BC.

Historical documents mention the existence of four towers inside the Acropolis during antiquity. Today, however, only one tower survived through the centuries. This is called “Fortress of the King” also known as “Tower of Orestis” or “Koulas”.
