We have got no evidence about the period of time the castle was built
- besides Agios Ephstratios has never been the object of systematic archaeological
research. Except the lower parts of the wall, the reservoir of the water-supply
and a trench in the east are still extant. The natives attributed it to Genoese
and moreover to them they attributed the well which existed near today's school
- Chora's well, as they used to call it. It was about a monumental construction
with pillar all around and with a stone basin for the animals' watering.
