The village of Vavatsinia was founded during the Arabic raids. The first inhabitants were shepherds coming from the nearby villages Panayia, Ayios Nicolaos and Ayia Marina. The residents of these villages had to leave the shore to escape from the Arabs and to find rescue on the mountains, together with their animals. The village has taken its name from one black currant tree, which still exists by the river and its producing big black currants. The specific tree’s root was a natural water source and was a meeting place of travelers coming from the nearby villages of Ayioi Vavatsinias, Odou, Ora towards the village Lefkara. The current population is 62 permanent residents.
