Velanidia is situated near Kotsonis built-up area, 22 km away from
Argos. It is inhabited by
20 families that occupy themselves with olive trees, cattle raising and arboriculture.
The recovery of a Byzantine capital clearly indicates the historical background
of the region.
On the whole, Velanidia is regarded as a mountainous village; however,
its economy grows as if it is a village in a plain. This is mostly why its population,
liveliness and dynamism remain stable.
