Tower of Vrasna

Tower of Vrasna

In the settlement of Vrasna, high in the foothills of Kerdyllia, the visitor Strymonikos Gulf may encounter a Byzantine tower dating from the early 15th century.

It is located in the courtyard of the Holy Church of the Assumption.

According to a research of the 9th Byzantine Antiquities Inspectorate, the fort must have been on three levels with a roof, traces of which unfortunately have not been saved.

The area of the interior must be approximately 50m²., while the thickness of the walls must have been about 2,40 meters at the base then gradually reduced at each of the floors.
