Kalloni

Kalloni is the name of a town, and since the 2011 local government reform the name of a municipal unit of the municipality Lesbos, in the west-central part of the island of Lesbos, Greece. Prior to 2011 the current municipal unit was a municipality. The name also existed in ancient times, though the conventional transcription of the classical name in Engish is "Callone".It has a land area of 241.946 km². At the 2001 census it had a population of 8,194 inhabitants. The municipal seat was the town of Kalloní (pop. 1,732). The unit's largest other towns are Ágra (990), Parákoila (926), Dáfia (851), Fília (636), Skalochóri (581), Anemótia (534), and Kerámi (524). Kalloni was known as Kalonya during Ottoman rule, when it was a nahiya (township) center in the Molova kaza of the Midilli sanjak. Lesbos became part of the Kingdom of Greece in 1912.DescriptionKalloni is surrounded by the gulf waters, and supplied by a plain of 100 km², through which six rivers flow. There is always enough water from the underground and spring waters for its vineyards and gardens.Kalloni was historically the crossroad where the main roads passed. This has not changed much from ancient times. The village is surrounded by historic monasteries.In the last decade, the central village of Kalloni developed in the field of trade and is the seat of the municipality that comprises the settlements: Agra, Anemotia, Arisvi Dafia Filia Kalloni Kerami Parakoila Skalochori
