History and Monuments:

The village of Keramoti has obviously been named after the village, which looks like a cornet (cornet : keramo in greek).

His inhabitants dealt with the extraction of emery, agriculture, livestock and beekeeping.

The visitor can take a stroll through the narrow streets with the traditional houses, rest on the Palia Gefira (old bridge), worship Aghios Ioannis the Theologian and admire the exhibits of the Folklore Museum.

In Keramoti there is also the biggest waterfall of the island, that of Routsounas, six meters high, formed by the rivers that come from the mountains of Koroni and Phanari. A smaller waterfall is also inside the village, under the school.
