History Agia Paraskevi is named the village after 13th century church. Until 18th century the church was cared for by two Greek Orthodox nuns who where living in the village Agia Paraskevi. For many years the land around Agia Paraskevi farmed by the villagers of Ardaktos, a small village close to Agia Paraskevi. Up until the early 60's Agia Paraskevi had a population of 30 to 40 people, but at the end of 60s the village was deserted..Thirty years later eight men from village Ardaktos formed a loose co-operation to restore the original dwellings on condition they were built in traditional style.
