Linopotis is a settlement that belongs to the wider area of Pyli. It was inhabited by Italian colonists, whom the fascist government settled there, granting them a large expanse of land which it had expropriated from the native inhabitants.
The expanse of water or little lake of Linopoti, called Limni and sourced from the Mount Dikaios area, is situated on the road from Kefalos to Kos just before the town of Zipari. It is the home of ducks and geese which you can admire pretty much all year round while the huge eucalyptus trees thrive thanks to the ample presence of water. Its water is used to irrigate the adjoining village plain.
The parish church of Agios Pavlos (Saint Paul) is in Linopotis. Ruins of an early Christian basilica were also found in the area.
