The tower is located in Peloponissos, in Mani. The people of Mani are considered to have routs in ancient Greece and come from the people of ancient Sparti. Throughout the history, they were known by their neighbours and enemies to be fearless warriors with experience in bloody battles. From the Byzantine times, it was known that the people of Mani were acting as pirates. They spent most of their time living in guarded villages and towers which served as their base to fight for their land against armies that outnumbered them. Located in one of the least accessible areas of South Peloponissos, the proud people of Mani were never surrendered to any foreign invaders.
