It is said that the village was founded by someone called Thanos who
descended from the village of
Thana, which was in Arcadia.
The ruined church of Aghios Constandinos is referred to as a Patriarchical possession
in 1321. As one comes out of the village to the seaside he will see the laundry
rooms of Faraga and Megalakkos.
