Elata became a village hundreds of years ago when seven tribes came together to protect themselves from Turkish pirates. As a result, they built their village on a hill-side so they could better see ships on the Aegean Sea.

Today, the people of Elata mainly produce agriculture, from which comes almonds, grapes, honey, mastic, and olives.[2] The people of Elata also mine marble. There is also a sizable population of donkeys and goats in Elata.

The village of Elata is home to the church of the Holy Trinity.[3] Elata is also home to centuries old buildings, including the remnants of a fort built to protect themselves from pirates, who would sell children into slavery.
