    All about the Castle Hunt.

    Our Castle Hunt Full Day Tour offers a unique opportunity for tourists and visitors of Andros to explore the island’s Venetian past. The Latins ruled the island from 1207 till 1566 and built three castles for protective purposes which are still surrounded by the island’s history and local folk traditions and legends. Discover the archaeological remnants of Venetian castles, marvel at their majestic views, and unlock the islands’ past through cartography, diachronic traveler’s accounts, and live historical records.

    Join us in a unique guided visit to all three of them, take pictures and delve deeper into the island’s Venetian past, during this -one of a kind- day-tour!
