The village named after the Byzantine landowner Rosopoulos or Roussopoulos.

 

Description

The village named after the Byzantine landowner Rosopoulos or Roussopoulos. According to the tradition, the village was originally built northeast of the current site near Chortarolimni, close to the sea, but the residents abandoned it out of fear of piracy and moved it behind the hill Korakas.  

Remnants of old temples exist at various points in the rural area of Roussopouli which is a proof of earliest habitation. Most features are the remains of Agioklapsou (Agios Climis), where you can see fragments of marble columns, proof of the existence of a Byzantine church.
