A little further out of the village you can see the ruins of the ancient city Laiou. You should also try to visit the villages' church near the square, which is dedicated to Agios Dimitrios, and dates from 1760.
Here you can see some beautiful wooden sculptured icons and also icons painted by the artist Ioannis Pagonis.
