Assos: Venetian Fort
A small road winds its way down to Assos on the islands northwest coast to arrive at this small, unspoilt village. The pebbled beach is overlooked by the Venetian Fort, which is situated on a rocky peninsula across an isthmus from the village. Assos is popular with day-trippers as there is not much accommodation in the village itself. Situated high up on a rocky peninsula, the remains of this Venetian Fort make for good exploring. The impressive position of the fort was considered, in its day, to be unconquerable. Built around 1595 it has since seen occupation by the French and Russians.
