Totally untouched by tourism, Prinias is an authentic mountainous village where people make their living from agriculture and cattle-breeding. The surrounding region is mountainous and green, with many pine trees and fun trees.
The village is built on the site of ancient Rizinia, a Minoan settlement of the same time as Lato. Some remains of the Minoan era can presently be seen close to Prinias.
