Historical data

The settlement was founded with the settlement of refugees (from the Scholar of Thrace and from Asia Minor) after 1922. The settlement was settled around 1930 by families of Sarakatsani, who in these places have been overwintering for a long time. It owes its name to many olive trees. An aqueduct was built in 1960. The appearance of artesian hot springs has shown that the Olive Villages have long been known for the existence of a geothermal field [2] In the Olive Villages there are six small experimental greenhouses. The results of these applications are optimistic and give impetus to further research in geothermal fields that have been identified [3] but have not been thoroughly studied. From time immemorial, the inhabitants have been engaged in agriculture and animal husbandry and have become carnivals. There is an old church of Agios Georgios.
