Tower of Apollonia

  It is built on a hill on the Via Egnatia, between the ancient cities of Chrysoupolis (Eiona) and Anaktoroupolis (Oisyme). It is probably dated to the years of the Palaiologoi.
  The tower has two vaulted floors and flat roof. It is surrounded by a small rectangular fortification wall and other buildings. It has two arched gates, higher than ground level, large arched windows and small openings on all sides. The floors communicated with each other by means of a stone stairway.
  Extensive consolidation work has been carried out at the monument and the hill around the tower has been protected with a fence.
