There are three villages on the island of Paros in Greece - Dragoulas, Marmara and Tsipidos, that are situated on the eastern side of the island and are rich in remains of antiquity and probably occupy the site of an ancient town. They are known together as the "villages of Kephalos" after the steep and lofty hill of Kephalos. On this hilltop stands the abandoned monastery of Agios Antonios (St. Anthony). Around it are the ruins of a medieval castle which belonged in the late Middle Ages to the Venetian noble family of the Venieri.
