The “Twin Towers” in Mitikas, Euboea are built according to 11th century building standards of Western Europe. The towers are 18 meters tall and have a square width, one of 6.10 meters and the other of 7.5 meters. Both towers are built with rough stones placed meticulously.
With a distance no longer than 200 meters between them, the towers observe the Fyllon Castle as well as the Vasilikos and Lefkandios Castles.
