Description

The large burial mound and two tombs dating to the Roman period are finds that have been unearthed archaeological
excavations proving that the region flourished in classical times.
Today it is a small refugee village dating to 1922 when refugees from the south coast of Eastern Thrace along with 13 local
families settled here. Despite the difficulty in the early years, residents were able to not only survive but to economically
and culturally develop the community. A reference point for the village is the church dedicated to the Archangels that was
consecrated in 1818. According to tradition, the church was built on the site where the miraculous icon of the Archangel
th Michael was found buried. The church is visited by crowds of pilgrims on November 8 , its festival day.
The small picturesque village taverns are an ideal culinary destination, where guests can enjoy traditional food with
tsipouro and wine that is locally produced.
