The name 'KOURMAS' is due to a date palm tree that existed between two plain rocks and as a result wouldn't remain unnoticed. Such a tree was never seen around the area.

According to the legend, this tree was planted by a monk who used to leave in between those rocks, right next to where the rooms are today, in the monastery of Panagia Vretti.
