Houses

  During the second half of the 19th cent. There appears to have been considerable building activity. The village houses are architecturally very interesting, being made of local porous stone. Among the oldest standing are those of Katsanis (approximately 1860), Papavasiliou (1864), Galanis (1876), Aletras (appprox 1889) and K. Athanasiades (1898). In addition to the above, all the old stone hosues fo Athytos with their builders’ inscriptions and stone relief exhibit the skill and artistry of the workmen of the past.
