The village lies at an altitude of 300 m, close to Ipsarion mountain, 8 Km from Limenas (Chora, capital of Thassos). Due to its location, there are many fountains in the village with fresh water from the stream sourcing from Ipsarion mountain. The village’s population reaches 900 people in August. The religious character of the village is apparent from the 12 (one central – Virgin Mary – and eleven smaller peripheral) churches.
