Once it was the most populous village of the region and the administrative center of the surrounding settlements. Since the last 30 years, the majority of its population has moved to the seaside settlement of Koutsouras, 7 kilometers to the south. Stavrochori is a traditional village with many sights. It is also the birth place of Ioannis Papachatzakis or " Stravogiannios ", a violinist, who lived and died in Ierapetra.
