The name Kastro (means castle) comes from the ancient times, when there was an old castle to protect the inhabitants. At the end of the 19th century, the island's inhabitants started moving from the mountains to coastal areas creating new villages.

The village can be reached by an asphalt road from Limenaria, and its population in 2011 was 9 people.
