The Castle of Riniasas

One of the oldest castles in the region is the Castle of Riniasas which silently stands sentinel on a hilltop near the village of Riza. Historians estimate that the castle was built sometime during the 12th century, most likely by the ruler of Epirus, Thomas I Komnenos Doukas. Through the years it became a fortified city which was able to monitor the trade on land and at sea.
