Barozzi Tower/ Gratsia Fragopoulos

This tower is another important attraction of Chalki, located next to the church of Virgin Mary Protothronos.
It impresses not only with its size but also with its construction. It is surrounded by walls with battlements, a hot oil shooter and a suspension bridge, making the tower impregnable for each and every ambitious conqueror. 
Above its magnificent entrance there is the coat of arms of G. Fragopoulos while when it was built, in the 17th century, it belonged to the renowned Barozzi family.  Today, it has been restored and it is still used as a residence while it is considered to be an extraordinary monument of the island.
