Watering Holes in Sfentouri

In Aegina, a place with severe water scarcity, we will encounter many stone structures like wells that the inhabitants used to collect rainwater to water their crops and animals. These structures were called souvales (souvala in the singular form). The word is probably derived from the Slavic word 'suvala,' which means 'swamp' (that is, standing water). For the same purpose, we will also see several black stones (characteristic stones of Aegina, from the Kakoperato area) chiseled to form a large cavity on top of them. Here are some typical stones of this sort just outside Sfentouri, on a path that ascends alongside the road, heading from the little church of the Cross (Stavros) to the settlement.
