Andoz is a late Byzantine garrison fortress atop a steep outcrop defended by two baileys and four distinctive round towers.  Andoz, which is directly above a navigable river, has inter-visibility with the coastal sites of ├çam Burnu and Tirebolu and guarded a road from ┼×ebinkarahisar to the Black Sea.
