Τhe stone German Watchtower, a few kilometers above Velanidia, was built during the World War II occupation of Greece. Men from the surrounding region were conscripted to build this fortified structure at the top of a cliff overlooking the cape that afforded the German forces a bird's eye view of the Aegean Sea as far as Crete. When the war ended, it was looted by the local population.

Trekkers who make the climb will be rewarded with a breathtaking panorama.
