Near the picturesque seaside village of Asini lies the archaeological site by the same name. It features many Mycenaean tombs (the Barbouna necropolis) among others. The tombs are also known as the Barbouna necropolis. The remains of settlements date from pre-Mycenaean, Mycenaean, Geometric, Archaic and Hellenistic times. The citadel or acropolis and walls with a large tower belong to the Hellenistic period, i.e. from the third century BC. It was rebuilt during the Byzantine era.
