    Historical data

    The name of the village is due to a large spring (watermill). The source is also called the headboard. While the Venetian census is not mentioned, it is mentioned in the Turkish census of 1671. In 1577 in the Barocci catalog the settlement is listed as Agios Vasilis Crevatas and in the census of Kastrofylakas [1] in 1583 with 689 inhabitants and with the name S. Baseglio Crevata

    In September 1943 the village was set on fire by the Germans and 36 of the men were shot dead. At the same time, Krevatas was set on fire, mourning 22 deaths (executions by the Germans).
