From few sources there, the village was first inhabited in 1400, perhaps a little earlier, probably by Albanian tribes. The then name of the village was Kokkino Dima and it came from the red soil that still characterizes the area and probably from the name of the lighthouse leader who then dominated the village because such similar names had neighboring villages, as shown by maps found by it. the season. During the Turkish occupation, the village belonged to the Voivode of Martino, which means control of the area.
