Castle of Drymaia - Overview

   The fortification wall of an ancient Phocian city, Drymaia, is preserved. It dates to the 5th century B.C. Both trapezontal and isodomic masonry has been attested in its extant parts. Square towers are well preserved on the west side. Remains of a circular enclosure crowned the summit of the hill and surrounded the main acropolis. On the slopes of the hill remains of a temple dedicated to Demeter Thesmophoros (Law-giving) are visible.
