  Near Vrontamas is Paleomonastiro, a monastery of the 12th century built inside the rock. Paleomonastiro is a monument of the Struggle for Independence: on September 15, 1825 500 men from Vrontamas refused to surrender to the army of the Egyptian warlord Ibrahim and were burned alive in the monastery. The Municipality of Skala holds a memorial service on that day.
