The medieval Castello Rosso built on Byzantine foundations by a version of the Baron Ravanus Dalecarcheri between 1209-1216. It was occupied by the Franks and purchased later by the Venetians who held for 104 years. Later, during the Ottoman period (1470-1830), was fortified even more magnificent than the Turks. The period of Revolution of 1821 there were many battles for the capture of the Castle. Odysseus Androutsos, Nikolaos Kriezotis, known as the "Lion of Evia" and the French philhellene Fabvier seized without result. The Castle opened its doors to the Greeks after the liberation, in 1833.
