At the Bay of Thelogos lies the settlement of Agios Ioannis Theologos.
It is built close to the northern ancient town of Alle,
that lied at the northern side of the bay. The archaeological mattock brought
to light finds dated from the Neo-lithic era and the mid-Byzantine ages. The port
of Alle met a great bloom during the 5th century BC Due to the wars the port was
led to decline and finally to destruction by the Roman Sylla in 85 BC. The town
was rebuilt in 83 B.C. by the few inhabitants that had escaped the slaughter.
Today Theologos has developed into a modern by the seashore resort, that in summer
time is bursting with vitality.
