With a population of almost eight thousand inhabitants is the epithet "village", according to some incorrect. It is spoken in many places across the town Archangelos. But anyone who has visited Archangelos which will agree that little town is in this place that actually has its origins in the seventh century AD. Because the location was very susceptible to attacks by pirates are former small settlements to be found here were gone. Only at the end of the Middle Ages, after the fall of Constantinople, the St. John the Knights built a fortress on the hill in Archangelos. From this castle the remains are still visible. The ruin is called the Acropolis of Archangelos.
