The architectural remains of the city Panormos (Ano Kisseli) are located on the slopes of Mt. Agios Ilias. Researchers identify the city with the ancient Phaestino, where the important sanctuary of Apollo in Phaestino was situated. Important finds from the broader region attest to the importance of the site in antiquity: a rich classical burial in pithos, found at Lousa, the ancient defense tower to the northwest of the village and of course the considerable number  of manumission inscriptions, according to which the slave was “sold” to the god within the precinct of the temple of Apollo. This “sale” of the slaves in the presence of witnesses was a widespread practice of manumitting in Central Greece and particularly in Delphi.
