The traditional villages of this area are situated in the innermost parts, they are mainly semi-mountainous and are called with the generic name: villages of Gyrou, a term that was first used in the 13th century AD.
Their inhabitants are mainly descendants of Byzantine soldiers who served at the fortress of Angelokastro near the village of Krini just above Paleokastritsa.
