Karlovasi is a town with a rich history in culture and in commerce, being a flourishing tannery and tobacco manufacturing centre in the early 1900s. Many magnificent neoclassical mansions can be seen from that period as well as the remains of the large stone-built factories at the "Ormos" seaside.

As a result of the "Capodistrias" unification program, the town of Karlovasi (pop. 5,740) was the administration centre for the nearby villages of Platanos, Drakeoi, Kastania, Leka, Nikoloudes, Konteika, Kontakeika, Ydroussa and Agioi Theodoroi.
