At the top of the "Stochos" hill in the Nestani settlement there is a small church dedicated to St. John Prodromos the Thermologos. The name was given because when the people suffered from malaria fever, they asked St. John to heal them through a miracle. The tradition was that they would take a silver spoon and collect dirt from the four sides of the church, leaving the spoon to St. John as an offering for curing them.

The remains of an ancient Temple, most likely one dedicated to the ancient goddess Dimitra, have been found at the church's foundation. The continuation between ancient worship and Christian expression of faith is evident here. Today, on that hill there is a 4th, 5th and 6th grade climbing area, 70m. high, with two routes and two escape ways.
