Walking around Plaka you will encounter all kinds of Historical Sites...
While I have no idea what this is famous for, it is one of my favorites and I never cease wanting to snap a photo.

Playa de Gandia, Spain

Beautiful octagonal marble tower, which with more than 10 meters high served in ancient times as a reference to measure the direction of wind and time. A pity that when we went you could not go inside, now I think with the remodeling work that they have done if possible access. The tower can be seen from several points of the Agoro and has carved in marble the gods that represent each one of the winds.
