The province of Malevizi at the eastern foothills of Psiloritis Range still impresses with its religious monuments and the deserted countryside monasteries. The rugged mountainous terrain has formed a special cultural center.

The village of Agios Myron takes its name after the temple of St Myron, in which there is the tomb and the relics of St. Myron from Crete, which smell like myrrh.
