Mylopotamos Castle (near Mylopotamos village)

This breathtaking example of Venetian architecture was built on flaming red rock that comes to brilliant life at sunset. St. Mark’s lion, the coat-of-arms of the Venetian Republic, adorns the gate above the entrance. Built in 1565, it once housed 50 Venetian families charged with protecting the island from pirates’ terrifying raids.
