The proximity of the village to the capital is one of the reasons for its development in both agriculture and livestock, with a significant portion of its residents being involved in these industries. This close distance to the capital is one of the factors that has contributed to the growth and prosperity of the area.
The name of the village most likely originates from the Greek words "palaio” (old) and "metochi" (a farm belonging to a monastery). This is because the village did in fact belong to a monastery at some point in its history.
The village is home to the Kouti Bridge, a 9-arched stone structure that spans the Kouti or Merikas River, a tributary of the Serrahis. This bridge, built in the style of Roman architecture, was in use until recent years when it was replaced by another bridge built nearby. Despite its replacement, the Kouti Bridge remains a remarkable example of ancient Roman engineering.
