The village, which in the 2011 census recorded 553 inhabitants, is at the foot of Kissavos Mountain. Important attractions of the area are the ancient city Eurymenae, situated near the present village Stomio, and the Greek Orthodox Monastery of Agios Dimitrios, situated on the mountain slope above Stomio (founded in the 6th century and rebuilt in its present form in the 12th century).
