Medieval Castle

Location: Nea Epidaurus   

The Medieval Castle of Nea Epidaurus, Peloponnese Greece: On the hill above the traditional village of Nea Epidaurus, about 15 km from the archaeological site, there stand the ruins of a Medieval Castle, built to protect the area from enemies and pirates. The hill constitutes a natural fortification site as from up there someone can observe the whole area and valley of Epidaurus Peloponnese.

Constructed in the early 13th century by the Franks, only the ruins of some towers remain today from this Castle. Three churches used to stand inside the walls, the churches of Saint Theodosios, of Panagia and of Saint John, but only the last one survives today. In a walking distance from the Medieval Castle of Nea Epidaurus, you can visit the site where the first Constitutional Meeting of the modern Greek State took place in 1822 and the lovely gorge of Vothylas.
