This is one more animal-raising village hidden within lowlands, hills and cultivated fields. As in other villages, this is where animal farmers from Anogeia (the Highlands) settled after the liberation of Crete; they were all from the clan of the Karatzides, all raising animals and toiling the land.

Various archaeological sites have been identified nearby, such as at the rise of Kastriotis at an altitude of 681m and Trochalos Hill, towards Damania, where construction relics and ceramics, probably from the Geometric Period, have been found.

During the Nazi Occupation, radio communications were installed in a cave, along with a rebels’ court that tried traitors and threw them into the nearby ravine.
