The settlement is located in the center of the island and it seems that was once seabed, as shown by the fossilized shells in the region. From the first Venetian settlers in Kythira was Iakovos Viaros who settled in this region. The Viaros family prevailed in the area, whose name is due to the habit of given names in the villages of the ruling families. Because the surname Viaros spread much, slowly to stand prevailed nicknames, eg Viaros-Raptakis, Viaros- Athousis, Viaros-Charalampopoulos, Viaros-Kontoleon etc. From family-Viaros Raptakis come ancestors Attik in Kythira. The architecture of the village largely reminiscent of the fortified character of the houses in the villages of Kythira for fear of pirates. Viaradika is the most picturesque villages of Kythira overlooking a green fertile valley that separates the village from Mitata opposite. The tap area of the village is an oasis with streams, trees, orchards, cherry trees and greengages. Near the fountain found Mycenaean tombs and nearby is the impressive canyon Tsakona. Above the eyebrows climbing you will discover caves churches which testify to scare the residents once. Opening in two of these caves resembles a dog chasing a cat. That’s point one named Dog and cat.
