Project Description

Archaeological sights on Amorgos - Tower of Agia Triada, Arkesini

The Tower of Agia Triada (the Holy Trinity) was built during the 4th century BC to protect the area from raids and was named after the Byzantine church which is built nearby. It’s a characteristic example of Hellenistic architecture with a rectangular fortress built of local limestone in irregular coursed masonry. It is one of the largest and best-preserved towers of the Cyclades.

Also, the remains of the early modern era are impressive: modern built structures linked to agricultural installations, collection channel systems, a rainwater collection cistern, a built oven, an olive press and a byre, all indicating the continued use of the site through the ages.
