The capital of the eparchy was built in the 15th century like the other villages on the plain. The district was inhabited from the Neolithic period (on the hill of Kastelos) until the end of antiquity.

Cave of Trapeza
This is in the Lasithi plain northeast of Tzermiado. It is also known as the Kroneion I cave. J. Pendlebury and his colleagues excavated it in 1932. Like other caves, it was used in the Neolithic period as a seasonal abode and refuge. In the Pre palatial period it was used for burials.

Among the finds are pottery with plastic decoration of the Final Neolithic period, known as Trapeza ware, many stone and clay implements, bronze daggers, ivory figurines and gold jewelery. According to the excavator it was also a cult cave in the Protopalatial period.
