Kondopouli remains one of the largest villages on the island. The soil here is quite productive and people still cultivate land intensively. It flourished especially during the last century. During the German occupation, great destruction was caused in the village, but is still keeps part of its preceding prestige. According to tradition the columns of Aghios Demetrios are ancient, in a secondary use. Although this does not seem to be right, since the columns most likely have been engraved during the last century. In 1948, poet Yiannis Ritsos lived in exile in Kondopouli.
