The village, so called Kourkouli, is a tradtitional mountainous colony. It is situated at the 3rd km over the axis of the central road of Halkida-Limni and the foot of the montain, so called "Dry Mountain", in beautiful fully green with pine-trees areas, on inclined plane and altimeter of 400 meters.
It is of panoramic view, when on looks at the horizon of Aegean Sea but also Evoic Bay. The village was built by the residents of the colony, so called Skoulari which was situated at a distance of about 2 kilometers from the today's village to the area of Drymona. Its residents were forced to move because of brigands and corsairs invasions. The residents, first, gave the village the name "Neo Skoulari". The Turks, however, changed its name to "Kourkouli" meaning "pursued people". So, this name prevailed and has been kept even until today.
