Redevelopment of old well and HAVOUZA

The system well – water basin, operated until 1925 , after which water was supplied from a source located at the location “Lazaros”. A concrete tank was constructed and a number of taps were built (FOUNTANA-fountains) in the village.
After 1925 the well was used primarily for watering animals. After 1980 the well was abandoned and the area was deserted.
