Sights
  In the northwest of Katakolo, on St Andrew’s bay, there is a devastated castle, Ponticokastro. It used to be a powerful fort of Vilardouini. The castle is built at the site of the citadel of ancient Fias. Fias was Ilida 's haven whose remnants are found deep in the sea after the powerful earthquake of the 6th century.
  The Castle was constructed in the Byzantine period and was modified by the Francs (13th century), who called it Bo Vouar or Bel Vedere. It was repeatedly destroyed, mainly during the Turkish domination.
