the old settlement was abandoned some decades ago, but the old ruins remain. A few houses became restores, a bar is there since I know the islandf 25 years ago. Just a short impressive trip

A lovely walk from Livadia brings you to this haunting abandoned village. Only complaint was the church was locked.

This town was left when the 1700 inhabitants took their roofs with them and left the city to go for a new town. Nowadays it is a sleeping ruin in daytime and a pulsing partyplace in nighttimes.

Walk (40 mins) or get the bus and ask Pavlos the driver to drop you off at the path to walk up.

I understand it was due to people leaving the village for neighbouring larger islands after WWII. It may also be due to natural spring water running dry.
