The first houses at Peratata and the neighbouring village Travliata go back at 15th century. These villages during the period of the Venetian rule lived under the shadow of Saint George Castle which protected them from the North, while on the South they were protected by Saint Andreas. During that period, many tried to settle down in these two villages and in particular at Travliata, since they wished to have their names included in the list of the nobles and see them in the Libro d’ oro (a book which contains the nobles’ names).
The cooper and the lime furnaces of Peratata were very well known in the past since they supplied them to the greatest part of the island. Many of the inhabitants immigrated to U.S.A. and Australia or they occupied themselves with the commercial maritime as it happened with many other people from Livathos.
