According to legend, the ancient name of ‘Vrasies’ came from the slain Semeli. The earthware jar in which Zeus trapped Semeli and her son Dionysius as to punish them, was found on the current beach of Plaka. The devout citizens of the area decided to honour Semeli with a proper burial but also to take care of the upbringing o Dionysius thus referring him to the tutor Ino. The young tutor protected dionysius from divine and human power forces hiding him in the cave of the current monastery Agios Nikolaos Sytzas. The conquest of the divine beauty of the area fruited a love and euphoria relationship between Dionysius and the land, as a result the corps and fruit multiplied day by day. In honour of Dionysius the plains of the area were names ‘The Garden of Dionysius’.
