About Abandom Village
The mountain “Helidonia” is located west of the village, on the banks of the river Gialia. At its base and across from it are the ruins of an ancient settlement, where, according to legend, the first Kapedes settlement existed. According to legend, this community was abandoned after a pandemic epidemic wiped out its inhabitants. Kyriakos Kakoullis asserts that the region was inhabited until 1850. According to testimony, a fatal epidemic came out during this time period, and the surviving inhabitants fled far away to avoid it. As part of the Machairas Management Plan, the Department of Forestry has begun restoring the village’s ruins.
