An example of special architectural value is Markellos Tower. It is a Venetian tower – observatory, which was built in the end of the 17th century and was renovated in 1802 by Spyridon Markellos, member of the Filiki Etaria, fighter in the Greek Revolution and later member of the parliament. Here the first anti-government committee was established in the period 1826-1828 and for some time the treasury of the Greek state.
