On the south coast, near the village of Armolia, is the imposing castle of Apolichnon. It was built in 1440 during the Genoese occupation by Nikolao Mpanka Ioustiniani. What is more, it bears the symbol of authority of Justinian, which nowadays is kept at the school near the square of the village.
The castle has a double wall, many small towers, rooms and a well. It is also built in a place where they can oversee the watchtowers of the surrounding area and be notified in case of attack.
To get there, you need to drive an uphill path distance of approximately 1000 meters. Both the medieval castle as well as the path between the green olives and tall pines will reward you.
