Vrisi

 

Vrisi was built in the late Byzantine era. The name comes from the taps or of which was supplied with water, or the ancient city "Vrynchai" (Grynchai) that was built west. The village is built flat and surrounded by torrents of Kolethras Ladon and Nedon forming an equilateral triangle with the third side of the mountain Mavrovouni. It has a population of 486 inhabitants. After the revolution of 1821 several families moved from Epirus, who worked as Kioussis (builders, bricklayers) in villages. If you find yourself in the Vrisi, to visit: Just before the village, a small dirt road leading to the old Nerotrivia (the old water mill in the village), which operates until today. There he washed the heavy winter clothing beneath the whirl and pressure of water, falling headfirst. At 300 meters, is the main water source in the region called "Kolethra." Beautiful spring with green water that remains endless winter - summer and recently formed to meet the needs of visitors. In return it is worth visiting the picturesque chapels Saint Anne and Saint John. At the top of the hill is the church Tragkounara Evaggelistria, built on the ruins of an ancient temple believed to be temple of Artemis. On the same hill were the ruins of old cultures, fragments of tiles and pottery from the ancient city Grynchai destroyed by natural disaster (currently showing the hole in the mountain Kotylaiou traces of medieval fortifications and castle ruins.)   Source: City Konistron

History

Μέχρι τη Βρύση έφθασε και ο Μωάμεθ Β΄ κατά τη διάρκεια της πολιορκίας της Χαλκίδας και πολιόρκησε το φρούριο των Γρυγχών όπου είχαν οχυρωθεί οι 3.000 κάτοικοι της περιοχής. Όταν σώθηκαν τα τρόφιμα συνήψαν συμφωνία να παραδώσουν τα όπλα και να φύγουν. Ο Μωάμεθ Β΄ μετά την παράδοση αθέτησε τη συμφωνία και τους κατέσφαξε στη νότια πεδινή έκταση του φρουρίου και τους έθαψε σε ομαδικούς τάφους. Η τοποθεσία από το πλήθος των ταφέντων θυμάτων ονομάστηκε Χιλιαδού.
