Nea Koutali is a refugee village. It was created in 1926 when 351
people from the little island Koutali of Propondida
came here. They continued to fish sponges near the coasts of North Africa. Panagis
the Koutalian was probably the most famous of them all. He lived at the end of
the last century and became famous as a wrestler.
