Castello Rosso

Castello Rosso

Standing sentinel above the seaside town of Karystos, Castello Rosso or “red castle” is one of Evia’s most well-known monuments.

Built in the 13th century atop existing Byzantine fortifications by Baron Ravenus Dalecarcheri, the massive castle switched hands and continued to develop and have fortifications added onto it by Franks, Venetians and later Turks. It was under the Turks that the structure underwent its most impressive building. It only fell into the hands of the Greeks after the War of Independence had ended in 1833. Today it’s a fascinating remnant of the past to expore.
