Prospilia is a relatively new settlement in the area. It is built 500 m north of the seacoast on the road from Analypsis to Pefkoi. The development started in 1970 and is still growing.
The name Prospilia is given to that area as there are many tiny caves of white stones. Prospilia, ASprospilia, Aspra Spilea (White Caves) is the conversion of the words describing the characteristics of the area.
