Pegeia Vrisi (Vrisi Ton Pegeiotisson)
Vrissi ton Pegeiotisson is a famous and impressive fountain built in 1907 which remains in an excellent condition until today. It was the main source of drinking water for the village until 1956. Vrisi was considered as a life-giving fountain as the area was suffering from drought. Thus, the people of the community were gathering around, not only to collect water but to also meet their loved ones.
