The "district" of Assomatos is the biggest of the Asfendiou area and is situated at the foot of the Dikaios Mountain range. It takes its name from the Church of Assomatos which lies at its center and has consistently contributed to the development the local community. Through donations and the running of an oil press in the early twentieth century its wealth grew and was used to extend loans to local farmers and businessmen while a number of schools were also built and supported by the Church.

The houses of the area were traditionally built of stone and were orthogonal or Γ shaped. The roof was made of timber or bamboo thatch.
