A very green fertile village which used to be called Tourtouli. It is 14 kms from Sitia on the way to Ierapetra and is of archaeological interest as cemeteries from the Minoan and Geometric periods have been discovered here as well as a Minoan villa. The caves of Mikro Katafigi and Megalo Katafigi are found close to the village.
