Kapsalino Castle, Mavrato

This castle can be found in the eastern part of the island. It stands at an altitude of 800 metres within the Athera mountains and can be accessed by a single path which starts at Mavrato and continues towards Karavostamo. The castle’s location and its imposing views over Ikaria’s entire eastern region suggest that it once acted as an important fortress and look-out point. Unfortunately, only fragments of the castle have survived but its impressive views make the journey worth the while.
