At the highest mountain of Tinos (640m) is the location the Venetians chose for their castle in 1207. They surrounded this stronghold by two enormous buttress-walls. It is the most strategic spot on the island. In 1901, a huge marble cross was erected on its summit. The cross was destroyed in 1915, and restored in 1931.
