Manna (Μάννα) Korinthia

Manna or Mana (formerly Markasi or Markasi [1]) is a mountain village in the prefecture of Corinth, near Trikala, Corinth and is located at the foot of Mount Kyllini or Ziria, at an altitude of 860 meters. According to the 2011 census, its population is 476 inhabitants.

General and historical data

The original name of the settlement was Markasi or Markasi and according to the dominant version it is of Arvanite origin, although its inhabitants had Greek as their mother tongue [4] [5]. Another theory wants the name to be Turkish. Its current name was given in 1927 (Government Gazette A 206/1927, Decrees) from the water source (= manna) through which the village was supplied with water.

The village was created in the early 19th century and its first settlers came from Arcadia [4], while by the first half of the 20th century the older inhabitants had retained the linguistic idioms and pronunciation of the place of their distant origin [5] .

Administratively, Manna is a homonymous local community belonging to the municipal unit of Xylokastro of the municipality of Xylokastro - Evrostini.
