Fodor's Review

During the negotiations for Greece during the War of Independence, Ioannis Kapodistrias, the first president of the country, conducted meetings in the Markelon Tower, dating back to the late 17th century. Today, the pink- and ochre-hued tower is being looked after by the municipality and occasionally houses cultural events and exhibitions.
