The old village of Plagia is located on the north-west side of Xiromeros, opposite Lefkada Island. Its inhabitants abandoned it after the 1966 earthquake and landslides, and relocated to the new Plagia village.

The houses that you will see in the video below were similarly architectural with the houses in the villages of Lefkada. It is worth noting that such houses aren't met in the area, which makes us think that this particular village could be a model traditional settlement, very close to the sea.

The area is characterized by its beautiful nature. Buds, figs and many almonds are scattered between the ruins.
