Livadochori is first referred in 1355. As it is located in the center
of a fertile plain it was quickly developed. Part ot its importance must be due
to the neighbouring Monastery of Aghios Pavlos, where the Limnian Metropolis was
transferred after 1390 and before 1447. This Monastery possessed a quite large
region, the most fertile on the island. It was said that Constandinos Palaiologos
himself gave the Monastery to the Limnian population in order to use its income
for educational and ecclesiastical purposes. In the beginning of the 19th century
a Sultan's document was granted to the Christian community. Since then it is administered
by a Pallimnian Committte.
