The 8th June is the name day of the patron saint Agios Theodori, on this day, the villagers and the public can take part in the celebration which takes place at the little church on the Island. Apart from the Island there is a second islet next to Theodorou, at the back, called Glaraki (little seagull).
Legend has it that the Island was a monster and the cave was the monsters jaw. It was said that the monster emerged from the sea to swallow the Islanders. Thankfully, the gods intervened and terrified the monster leaving it as it is today.
Despite it's size, Island Thodorou is rich in history. During the Minoan period it was a sacred asylum. Much later in 1574 Venetians built a fortress to protect the surrounding area from any hostile invasion. Two fortresses where built within one year, one at the top and the other at the bottom. After many battles over the years the fortresses were blown up.
Today the fortresses are totally destroyed, only the church and a few remains are a reminder of the past.
