Palia Valsamata (Old Valsamata)

Palia Valsamata (Old Valsamata) is located here

Near to the Monastery of Saint Gerasimos are what remains of the original village of Valsamata, now known as Palia Valsamata.
It was the main settlement in the area at the time of the 1953 earthquake and was all but destroyed, however many of the buildings are remarkably well preserved.
The new village of Valsamata was established shortly after and today it thrives with a population in excess of 700.
You can also see earthquake period ruins above the neighbouring village of Fragata.
