Russian dependency (metochi) near the border. A former hospital of the Russians but now the land is leased to Tsantali winecompany. There was a fire here in august 1887 (Fennell, The Russians on Athos) destroying a large part of the buildings.
Now the village is totally wrecked. It was fascinating to walk around as we did in september 2009. It was covered with vegetation and you could not enter the ruins. The houses a litle bit higher up (the long building) were in better shape. Workers lived there and there was a small police station.
