Μεσαιωνικός πύργος Οινόης. Medieval Oinoi Tower. This imposing Frankish tower is located in Apollo, Oinoi. The tower was built around 1250, during which Attica's ruler was Guy de la Roos (or Delaros). Guy de la Roche was the son of Otto de la Roche, a nobleman from Burgundy (from La Roche-sur-l'Ognon) who was one of the knights who participated in the Fourth Crusade (which ended with the fall of Constantinople in 1204). Othon was the successor of the Delaros who ruled the Duchy of Athens until 1308. The concept of "Duke" and "Duchy" seems to have been a strangeness of Otto Delaros, whose title was normally the Lord of Athens (Sire d'Athenes and, for the Greeks, the Grand Cyrus or the Great). However, Otto insisted on calling himself "Duke" and eventually this title was formalized in 1260, so the Attic Franciscan fiefdom passed into history as a Duchy of Athens. The purpose of the tower was probably to protect and supervise the estates of the area. It may have belonged to the Delaris family or one of their slaves. The tower is kept in relatively good condition. Recently renovations were carried out that respected the medieval form of the tower. The entrance to the tower was made from an opening on the first floor, something common in medieval towers. In a more recent period a new entrance to the height of the ground was created, which is shown in older photographs. This later entrance has been closed after recent renovation work. So it's hard to get inside. Production .VIDEO. Drone as DJI Mavic. Drone as 4k DJI Mavic. Subscribe to our channel and watch our videos traveling all over Greece Greece. Travel.🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷📽🎬
