Grec Tower/ Fragopoulos Tower

You will find it in the village of Kourounochori and it is one of the oldest towers of the island which is still used as a residence and it is preserved in a very good condition.
It is a really high, three-storeyed building of the 14th century which has a courtyard, defensive battlements, hot oil shooters and cells. It has no windows in the basement, strengthening much more its defensive nature.
At the balcony there is a marble table with an inscription saying 1727 D.P.S CNO SPA, which means that then the building belonged to Somarippa family. Later, it became property of Della Rocca and Fragopoulos families. It stands imposingly with a view to the valley of Melanes.
