3. History

The area used to be farmlands, until the early-20th century when the area saw housing expansion with neoclassical buildings and paved streets. The population grew later on. After World War II and the Greek Civil War, the area saw taller buildings as high as eight stories tall and neoclassical buildings are more rarely seen. A supermarket was added later on in the 1990s and later, a cinema was added. More land was added to the west and in the early-2000s the Port of Patras expanded southward.
