Physsini is mentioned during the last century. Nevertheless ruins
belonging to medieval buildings are found there. The place names of the region
are documented since the 14th century. The characteristic type of the Limnian
rural house is still preserved here. At a distance from the village is the church
of Aghios Sozon, the main saint worshipped on the island. Guest rooms have been
built to serve the worshippers who usually come here the evening before the holy
day, to attend the vespers.
