The island's, ancient walled city,the "kastro" or stronghold of ancient Aigila, lies in the north of the island above the bay of Xeropotamos , once the city's harbour. Its walls, which date from the Hellenistic period, have survived in good condition. The city's ruins cover about 75 acres, and it probably had about 800-1000 inhabitants. Much of the fortification has been preserved: in places, the walls stand as much as six meters tall. In the harbour of Xeropotamos there is a "neosoikos" -an inclined space or slipway where the warships from the pirate city were stored. It is carved out of the rock and in exceptionally good condition; it is one of the few in Greece that have ever been found preserved in their entirety. The ongoing excavation of the stronghold has discovered that the fortifications were first built towards the end of the fourth century BC or the beginning of the third century BC. Important repairs were made during the middle of the third century BC, after an expedition of invaders from Rhodes devastated the city
