Byzantine and medieval castle of Oreoi

Overlooking the peaceful seaside village of Oreoi, the remains of a once-grand castle stand sentinel. Built up during the period of Frankish rule, the castle was inhabited continuously throughout the Byzantine and medieval periods. Further excavation throughout the area revealed traces of buildings dating back to the 4th and 5th centuries. Today little remains, though the views over Oreoi and the sea make the journey here worthwhile.
