Doxapatri Tower in Achaia, Peloponnese is a historical site that boasts a byzantine settlement and castle located between the villages of Agia Triada and Skiadas, situated on the southwestern side of mount Erymanthos or Skiadovouni in northwest Peloponnese. The tower, constructed on top of an ancient acropolis, was abandoned in the early centuries AD but was later reinhabited during the Byzantine or Frankish period. The settlement becomes evident in sources including maps and fief lists after 1463. Its name comes from the byzantine general Doxapatris Voutsaras, who served as the military commander in the Achaia area towards the end of the 12th century. The tower still stands tall today, with its history and legend rooted in the general's defense of a nearby castle.
