The sad story of a village....

In 16th century, residents of the southern Almyros and ancient Alos, because of plague, came and installed themselves in the village Platanos. In 1821 and 1878 village was burned by Ottomen. In 1833 was destroyed by the bandit Valatsos and his gang. Finally in the 15-8-1943 (WWII period) village was destroyed again by the Italians. In 1960 began the abandonment of the village from his residents, which were installed in the New Platanos village, few kilometers away.
