  At the foot of Kirfis mountain and at an altitude of 600m. is lying amphitheatrically the small picturesque town of Desphina. Having a population of about 2,500 inhabitants, nowadays Desphina is an independent Municipality, near the site of the ancient city of Echedameia (there still are ruins-curved graves, etc.), which was destryed by Phillip II of Macedonia (355-346 BC), native town of the 1821 hero Isaiah bishop of Salona Isaiah and of the painter Spiros Papaloukas.
  Noteworthy monuments of Desphina and of the region are: the historic monastery of Ag. Ioannis Prodromos related to the 1821 Liberation struggle, the chapel of Taxiarches (in the yard of the Agios Charalambos church) which is a Basilica built during the 12th century with notable but partly damaged wall paintings. At the site Syro-Kastro there are still ruins of the ancient town of Medeon, ruined together with Echedameia by Phillip II (Third Sacred War).
