If you come to Katakolo, you should definitely visit the Castle, also known as Pontikokastro (named after its shape), built by the Vilardouins during the Byzantine period. For its construction, remains of the walls of Fia were used, however during the 13th century the Castle was reconstructed by the Francs, who renamed it to "Beau Voir" or "Bel Vedere". Nowadays, we can only see a small part of the fortress as the castle was destroyed several times, especially during Greece's occupation by the Turks.
