The only twin towers in Greece

There, east of Chalkida, lies a peculiarly shaped plain covering an area of about 40 square kilometers. The river Lelas passes through it. This plain is also bordered by the southern Euboean Gulf and a small part of it by the north.

Somewhere there lie the “Twin Towers” of Greece. These towers were built by the Venetians. In fact, a knight named Likarios lived in them.

In the second half of the 13th century, Knight Likarios found himself serving at the court of Giberto II da Verona, until he fell in love with his sister.

Felicia’s relatives, not wanting an unknown knight as their groom, reacted strongly.

After many pleas, Likarios managed to avenge them and took all their territories except Chalkida.

For this reason, he remained in both castles in Moudros, where he had set up his base.

Likarios continued his aggressive tactics and, with the castle of Fyllon as his base, seized many islands and castles.
