Papadakis Tower/ Markopolitis

In the region of Tragaia and particularly in the village of Akadimoi, you will meet a big tower constructed by Marcos Politis in 1776, evidenced by the coat of arms at its entrance. It is special because it is one of the really few towers built by a Christian Orthodox while it was also used by the Naxian residents as a vehicle of resistance and disputes against the Frankish rule.
Its characteristics clearly indicate its defensive nature. It is in a good condition and it belongs now to Papadakis family that uses it as a residence.
