The island of Rhodes has had a rich history as a centre of trade and naval power in the Aegean. Rhodes has had a reputation for producing the finest sailors in the Mediterranean world and has many harbours and ports across the island.
The name of the village is believed to have come from the lighthouse that was in the village or the temple of Faneos. However, some argue that the name came from a type of grass that grew in the area.
