Following the 1924 exchange of populations, Christian refugees from Axos and the community of Axenoi at Iconium (present-day Konya), Cappadocia, settled in what used to be the Muslim hamlet of Filisia. Even today, bonds with Cappadocia and memories of the old place remain strong. The Matron of the village is St. Marina, whose church is the only one on Crete.
