Modern Description: The Kazarma fortress (dimensions 85 X 75 m.) is situated upon a hill, 280 m. high, on the 15th km of the highway from Nauplion to Epidaurus. The walls (w. 2,50 m., pres. h. 5,20 m.) are built in the polygonal system, and date probably from the 4th century B.C. The fortress has four circular towers, the main gate is on the west side and a postern on the east. It was reconstructed during Byzantine times. It was probably built by the Argives and was apparently situated on the border between two ancient city-states, Argos and Epidaurus. The site is accessible from the east side of the hill. Ancient Lessa might have been near hear, or perhaps at Ligourio instead.
