Complete with multi-sided towers, ramparts and an interior church, the castle of Karababas is an excellent record in itself of Halkida’s history over the past 300 years. The structure was originally built at the end of the 17th century on behalf of the Turks. Its builder however, was a Venetian deserter and the castle has elements of both Venetian and Turkish architectural heritage. It stands on the Greek mainland directly across from Halkida and offers visitors amazing views over both the northern and southern halves of Evia’s Gulf.
