Historical data

The area has been inhabited since prehistoric times, as can be seen from the mound, where settlements were located at that time. The inhabitants are refugees, coming from the Plagia of Eastern Thrace. They came and settled in the place where they are today after 1922. The historical sights include the 18th century bridge, located in the stream of the settlement with Nea Tenedos. This bridge is believed to have been built by monks of the shares of Vatopedi in Triglia and the Russian share in Flogita or the share of the Monastery of Zografou in the homonymous village. After the rains a decade ago, it was largely destroyed and today efforts are being made to restore it.
