Argosaronikos islands have been inhabited since prehistoric age, and in the next years they knew a particular growth in the sectors of trade and shipping. Their contribution in the Greek Revolution 1821 was inestimable and decisive.

These islands constitute an outstanding gaud of island Greece and assemble every year, in winter as well as in summer, too many Greek and foreign tourists, that search for a place in order to have lovely holidays, relax coming in view of the natural beauty of the landscape, escape from the beaten track and be lost into the island atmosphere, that the beautiful natural harbors, the stone bench of houses and the scenic cobbled roads create.
