Stavrochori, according to tradition was built by the residents of Koutsouras years ago when they moved to the mountains to escape pirate invasions. Its name used to be Stravodoksari, probably the name of a Byzantine general or because of a bent bow of a musical instrument.

Stavrochori is at the crossroads that link several villages of the Municipality, making it a central point, particularly in the summer, when locals and visitors overflow the village to enjoy a scenic walk in the alleyways and taste the traditional titbits in the coffeehouses at the square, under the shadow of the plane tree.

In Stavrochori one can visit the picturesque small church of St. Constantinos, which attracts both worshippers and naturalists, because of the lovely waterfall next to it that covers the church with flowers and greenery with its gurgling water. The monastery of Lygia, the church of St. Fanourios and Saint Rafael are a favourite tourist attraction too.
