Sotiras, after the legend there was built a village, which was also called Polisma. It was built an altar to honor the half god Herakles, because he is god of the isle. The village was grounded by Pothon. Another legend says, that Sotiras was grounded by prince Athel, just after he left the village Kaki Rachi (today Kallirachi). Today there are only some ruins left, who reminds us of the past. Some meters above of Sotiras there were built some new houses and pensions. In the middle of the ruins you will find two churches. They are very gut preserved. The village was built interior to protect them from the pirates. But today you are able to see the village from the sea because most of the forest is gone. Some of it is gone because of a fire and some of the trees were cut by the people. In the ruins there were found some gifts for the dead, antic graves, small pots and also a relief of a horseman. The last inhabitants are occupied agriculture and honey. Together with Skala Sotiras there are about 750 inhabitants, who are living there.
