Modern Description: The road west from Kastélla, skirts the coast and heads towards the attractive village of Politiká (20.5 km), considered by some scholars to be the site of ancient Aigai below the southeastern slope of the Mount Kandili massif. The skyline is dominated by a high, 13th century Frankish tower, whose south face incorporates several antique marble elements in the window-frames. The holes for fixing construction scaffolding are still clearly visible.
