A brief description of the Lemithou village.
Not long ago, many government employees came to Lemithou to study at the Mitsi English School which was founded in 1912. Today the school operates as a secondary school. The church of Lemithou is dedicated to Panagia Iamatiki; people believe that the spring water found near the church can heal of nose haemorrhage. The Chapel of Agios Theodoros was rebuilt in 1975, on the site of a 16th century church which was destroyed by a fire. Lemithou was named after the first settler of the village who was called ‘lemithis’, a nickname describing a person with thin, long beard that resembles a wild plant.
