  Built amphitheatrically, in 180 meters of altitude, the village offers a panoramic view of the valley of Chora and the Aegean Sea. It is one of the oldest villages of Samos, founded at the same period as Miloi.
  Its soil is very fertile and ideal for the cultivation of vine trees and olive trees. Other products of Pagondas, of high quality, are timber, cheese, honey, vegetables and fruits.
  The village boasts many sites amongst which:
•The Church of the Holly Trinity. An imposing stone built church of 1872. Opposite the church there is the church's museum with icons of the 17th century and other religious artifacts.
