The ancient city in Kastelli shows signs of habitation by the first Dorian settlers of the island, which date back to the 8th century BC. From then until the destruction of the island by the famous pirate Barbarossa in 1537 AD, the area around the ancient city seems to have been inhabited continuously (Athenian League, Hellenistic times, Roman era, Venetian rule and Byzantine era). Around the top of Kastelli there was an extensive castle fortification, scattered ruins of which we will encounter today. A bit below Kastelli and to the west, we will find burial buildings dating back to Roman times.
