    “Poria” is a light, porous, volcanic tuff. When cut in rectangular pieces, it was used as a building matter. Kimolians were in the “poria” trade (in Greece,Southern Europe and Asia Minor) for centuries. The working refuges (matsakania), were in use to insulate the flat roofs of the houses and build dry stone walls for the fields.
    Yet, there were enough remains to make these walls.
