Castle of Avlemonas

In the picturesque fishing village of Avlemonas, on the east coast, you’ll find the third in chronological order Venetian fortress built on the island. Agia Pelagia, Kapsali and Avlemonas were the three major ports of the time. From this point one could control the Aegean Sea while the other two forts controlled the Cretan and Ionian Seas, respectively. The building’s observatories and battlements stand out and through the interior corridor with 14 arrows you can see some rusted cannons scattered through the space. It was near this fort that Lord Elgin’s ship “Mentor” –carrying the Parthenon marbles- sank.
