According to tradition its name stems from the weeds ("agriovotana")
growing in the region. Even though it covers a small area, it offers a spectacular
view. From the small square of the village the visitor can discern the mountain
Pilio and, weather permitting, even Athos. A passable dirt road leads from the
village to the beach "Koutsoubri" where there are picturesque taverns. The beach
is ideal for windsurfing and jet-skiing. The luxuriant vegetation and the long
beach compose a unique colourful scenery.
