Μέχρι τα μέσα του περασμένου αιώνα ο Θεολόγος ήταν το κεφαλοχώρι του νησιού, ενώ ακόμη και σήμερα, αντίθετα με τα υπόλοιπα ορεινά χωριά, είναι ζωντανό χωριό με πολλούς κατοίκους.
On the south-east rim of the island and just a few km from Potos, we can find the small rural settlement of Astris. Its name was given by the inhabitants due to its starlit sky, during their seasonal stay of olive gathering.
Potos situated in the southwest part of Thassos, is an old fishing village and also the port of Theologos which is the oldest and most historic capital of the island.
Driving the coastal road, leaving behind the steep and greenery cape of Kefala, someone arrives in the small picturesque bay of Tripiti, which is a beautiful beach with very clean sea and fine sand, and then finds the town of Limenaria with the settlement Kalivia which are in a high touristy development. According to the last census the residents of Limenaria are almost the same number as these of Limena, the capital of Thassos.
