Geography and history[edit]

According to several sources, the village was founded between 1530 and 1600 by inhabitants of five settlements, Agios Athanasios (Kastro), Agios Konstantinos (Leivadi), Agios Ioannis (Kampeas), Petrovouni and Megisti or Katsipodas, fleeing from raiding Lalaioi Turks. According to Max Vasmer, the name might derive from the Slavic word Mogyljane ("hill people").[2] The word is also related to the modern Greek μαγούλα (magoula, of Slavic[3][4] or Albanian[5] origin) which means hill or small mound. It was renamed to Argyrokastro in 1927,[6] but it was renamed back to Magouliana in 1929.[7]
