  • beautiful church and Byzantine ruins at Asklipios, an Orthodox Church where we found an imminent wedding was being celebrated

  • Returning from Parsonisi, decided to enter the fortress of Asclepion, which is located in the village on the left side of the road, if you go to the North. The village is known since the 7 century BC, because it was the Temple of God healing Asclepius (Aesculapius), which he himself had built. We enjoyed the card with me, "which got the tablet. The road goes uphill to the fortress, part of a road paved, and closer to the fortress-primer. Near the fortress there is a small playground, where you can park your car. Free entrance to the fortress. The fortress is situated on a hill with a height of 250 m, was built in the second half of XV century. (over the gate of the fortress stands date 1473) to protect the southern part of the island. The strategic location of the fortress of the Knights of the order of St John allowed to keep under the control of a large part of the South-East of the island. The fortress is rectangular (almost square) structure with rounded edges and towers, which almost did not survive to our days. In medieval staircase takes you to the well-preserved Tower and go inside. Under the second tier of the fortress is a network of catacombs, which are believed to lead to the village; According to him, local residents can safely hide from pirate raids in the fortress. With the fortress offer magnificent views of the sea and surrounding countryside village. Despite the fact that no reconstruction works, reconstructions and restorations in the fortress was not, we really enjoyed this introduction with landmark.
