Towerhouses in Andros

Towerhouses in Andros

The tower – residences of notables that were built at the 17th and 18th century are important landmarks of Andros. They are tall, square residences with many rooms and storage spaces. The entrance to the tower was a small door that was placed high from the ground and accessible only by a mobile wooden ladder to protect tenants from enemies. The Tower of Bistis (Mouvela) in Stenies and the Tower of Mastroyannoulis in Amolocho both from the 17th century are the most representative, as well as the Tower of Lorentzou Kairi in Mesaria and the tower of Folerou in Strampourgies.
