HISTORY: Krimini (the greek word for “precipice”) is a relatively new village based on Greek standards, having been formed around 1720. Prior to that, the village (Old Krimini) was located further north in the Grammos mountain range where its steep precipices and rugged terrain protected the inhabitants from persecutions of the numerous conquerors of Macedonia.
