History

Krimini (from the Greek word for "precipice") is a relatively new village by Greek standards, having been formed around 1720. Before that, the village (Old Krimini) was located further north in the Grammos mountain range, where its steep precipices and rugged terrain protected the inhabitants from persecution by the numerous conquerors of Macedonia.
