The Krouna Tower is located approximately 1km of Ierissos and it’s one of the most important sights in the area.
It’s preserved almost in full height (12m).
The Tower was a dependency, surrounded by a wall, which has almost collapsed. It is estimated that it was built in the 15th century and it is named after the many crows which have their nests there (kourouna+crown).
Moreover, the property is referenced as a dependency of Korouna in Ottoman reports of the 15th century and belonged to the Hilandariou monastery until 1542. Then, the monastery periodically lost ownership of the dependency until 1719, when it was purchased among other properties in the area. It was sold and repurchased at least twice.
