Stretched along the ravine of Agia Eirini, there is the traditional hamlet of Eleousa, enjoying the beauties of the natural landscape (protected by the ‘Natura 2000’ Programme), with its plane trees, willows, chaste trees (Vitex agnus-castus) and poplars, generously offering their shade to daring hikers. Eleousa looks more like a large neighbourhood and less like an autonomous hamlet, since it has almost joined the main hamlet of Kato Archanes, following the intense residential growth of recent years.

Its name comes from the largest church of Archanes, dedicated to Mother Mary of Mercy, (Panagia Eleousa), while in the past the location was known as the Arab-Agas dependency.
