Kasteli – Fylla

The remains of a medieval castle, known as Kastelli, offers a magnificent and spectacular view on the top of the foothill. The castle was the base and residence of Lycarios (Hellenist, Likarios or Ikarios), a knight of Genoese origin, born in Karystos.During the 13th century, Lycarios, with the help of the Byzantine emperor Michael II Palaiologos (1259-1282), succeeded in recapturing on behalf of the Byzantines most of the castles of the Frankish Euboea.
