Castle - Northern Mines

From Manolas, follow the dirt road that heads north. After 500 meters the road forks, the part heading left leads to the little Church of Saint John, while the branch on the right goes to the northern mines in Kastro (Castle) or Paliokastro. Here, at the highest part of the steep eastern slope, early Byzantine settlement remains from the 7th to 9th century AD have been identified. Both the position and the layout of the settlement strongly resemble the fortified site of the castle on the rock of Skaros in Santorini.
