Asprovalta

Near the modern town, the ruins of a roman station of the Via Egnatia are preserved which was called Pennana.[2] According to a manuscript of Simonopetra monastery in Mount Athos, Asprovalta was built in the 16th century. Its first name was Aspra Valta. After the Asia Minor Disaster, 54 families from Erenköy of Troas (near the ancient city of Ophryneion) were installed in Asprovalta.[3]
