It was built at the end of the 10th century a.C. from the Czar Samuel of Bulgaria. In the islet, there was also a Roman and Byzantine settlement, named Lyki. There are more churches on the island, some of which are the Vasiliki of Dodeka Apostoli (11th Century), the Vasiliki of Agios Georgios (15th Century) and the Church of Panagia Porfyra.
