The picturesque village of Neda is amphitheatrically built on the southwestern edge of Mount Lykaios at an altitude of 755 metres. It has approximately 70 permanent residents. The village takes its name from the homonymous river that originates in Petra. Until 1930, the village was called Berekla, which testifies to the Slavic origin of its first inhabitants. The first settler, Pericles Bereklas, from Mani, settled in the area between 1689 and 1699, referred to as “the smallest settlement of Bereclades” by Venetian L. Pacifico.
In Neda, visitors can see the traditional houses built of stone and brick, as well as the old school building founded in 1904 and, today, houses the Cultural Centre of the village. The church of Agios Nikolaos and one of the old fountains with running water where you can quench your thirst are worth visiting.
Finally, a little outside the village, in the "Kastraki" location, ruins have been found that are identified with Panos’ sanctuary and have not yet been archaeologically exploited.
