The village was built after a prosecuted by the Turks "Kalogrea" (woman monk) found refuge inside a cave at the location of the village. Near Kalogrea village is located the famous Christian Greek Orthodox monastery of Antiphonitis (Antifonitis). The monastery of Antifonitis was one of the most beautifully decorated monasteries, with ancient Byzantine frescoes. It was too destroyed and looted by barbarian Turks.

Occupied Karmi village is located in Kyrenia district Cyprus, on Mount Pentadactylos and before the 1974 Turkish invasion it was inhabited solely by Greek Cypriots. Karmi village has been ILLEGALLY SOLD by the Turkish occupation regime to foreign citizens, mainly Britons and Germans, shortly after the 1974 Turkish invasion.

We want to make it ABSOLUTELY CLEAR to the British and Germans that have acquired properties in Karmi that their "title" is not valid because they have acquired STOLEN property belonging to Greek Cypriots. Inter alias, they interfere with Article 1 of Protocol 1 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms concerning the rightful ownership, access, and enjoyment of property. Greek Cypriots are determined to exhaust all lawful means to get their properties back, following the landmark legal precedence of Loizidou v. Turkey (ECHR).

Turks have also illegally founded an American University and research center in Karmi, in order to legitimize the ILLEGAL 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus.

Lysi village in Mesaoria, Famagusta district, CYPRUS. Birth town of the legendary Gregoris Pieris Afxentiou, Anti-lieutenant of the Greek army, and second in command of the Cypriot Liberation Organisation E.O.K.A. that was fighting the British colonial power between 1955-1959, and helped to achieve independence in 1960. In 1955 the British offered 5,000 English pounds for his capture. Afxentiou died heroically on the 3rd of March 1957, inside his hide-out near Macheras Greek Orthodox monastery on Macheras mountains, fighting against the British colonial Rule of Cyprus. He fought for more than 8 hours, single handed, against a regiment of British paratroopers that surrounded him after he was betrayed. The British, being unable to capture, or subdue him, and in view of mounting losses that they suffered, they threw petrol/gas inside the cave and burned him alive, only succeeding to prove once more that: "...from now on we will not say that Greeks fight like Heroes, but that Heroes fight like the Greeks..."!!!(BBC broadcast during WWII)
