The village is first mentioned in the history of Konstantinoupoli in 1453 (book b, chapter x). The name of the village Agios Ioannis comes from a temple devoted to Agios Ioannis Prodromos and is very common in the region of Kinouria since its residents from the 9-10th century have named their villages after Saints and built everywhere churches, chapels and monasteries. That’s why Kinouria is called a replica of Agio Oros.
