The Venetian Castle in Bochali Hill, on the outskirts of the island was built in 1480 and shortly after a portion of it was destroyed by the Turkish invaders. From 1514 and later rebuilt and eventually became the capital of the island. Today it is a ruin, but still worth a visit as it offers excellent views of the city from above, the Ionian Sea and the region of Peloponnese.
