Andros The tower houses of Aidonia village

The tower houses are big two-storey buildings with strong gates and battlements from where hot oil was poured onto the invaders. They were built by the so-called Archonti, the Venetians’ administrative employees who owned all the big farms – except for those that belonged to the monasteries. Some of them have been restored today and along with the rest of the buildings of the village they create some beautiful neighborhoods.
