Towers | Mani Lakonia
Updated: Apr 7
They were buildings constructed by and for powerful people of Mani only for defense. In this sense, the buildings were inhabited only in case of danger.
They had holes in several heights and battlements on the top. Due to their architecture, the towers and their armament were also the proof of strength for the families. There were three kinds of towers, each one with a different purpose. The war tower, the tower dwelling and the tower house.
