Castle of Chios
To the north of the modern city center, near the harbor, lays the Castle of Chios. This fortress was built in the Byzantine times around the 9th century and then repaired after the wars during the Genoa occupation in the 15th century.
At first, it enclosed the whole city of Chios, but soon the town expanded outside the precinct of its walls to its present size. Their emblem, three towers and an eagle, still exists in towers and battlements, which are in quite good condition.
